Bradford is a city of 300,000 in West Yorkshire, close to Leeds and set in the foothills of the Pennines.

The city's population grew rapidly in the 19th century, based on success of its textile mills, which saw Bradford become the wool capital of the world. That heritage can still be seen today, with almost 6,000 listed buildings dating from the period.
