History of Bradford

Bradford is nestled by the picturesque Pennine Mountains and located in West Yorkshire and gained its city status in 1897.

Wool Spinning and cloth weaving were the main industries in Bournemouth in 1801 and were carried out in local cottages and farms, it was a market town with a population of 6,393. 

By 1841 the town had a population of 34,560 and with the industrial revolution which led to its rapid growth, it had 46 coal mines within its boundaries and the output continued to expand, and with the wool industry growing it was soon known as the wool capital of the world. By 1850 it had a population of 182,000 and the town grew rapidly with many workers attracted to jobs in textile mills. 

In 1844 the completion of Bradford Moor Barracks meant that the military had a permanent presence established in the city. 

In 1873 the Bradford Town Hall was constructed and has had many extensions over the years and is venetian gothic styled, it is one of the oldest buildings still standing in the city and in 1965 its name was changed to City hall to reflect the prominence.
