The Illustrated History of Bradford’s Suburbs

Michael Birdsall, Gina Szekely and Peter Walker

Bradford grew swiftly around the turn of the 20th century. Within a few generations, small villages on the periphery were absorbed by the city’s expansion – by new industry, new housing, civic buildings and roads. The authors show how these villages retained their identity and how their names have lived on in the urban areas that surround the centre. Recalled are the origins and development of districts as diverse as Idle, Eccleshill, Undercliffe, Laisterdyke, Lidget Green, Crossley Hall, Allerton and Shipley.
