A guided walk around the Manningham area of Bradford

Join us for a free guided walk, with guide in costume, around the Manningham area of Bradford. The walk will include fascinating buildings and people from the past and present, plus some future plans. Whether you are a current or former resident of the area, or an interested Bradfordian, a visitor or a student, you will be very welcome.

The walking tour itself is on public pavements with some public road crossings. The first third of the walk is slightly downhill, the middle third is about level and the final third is slightly uphill. The start is from just outside the Manningham Mills main entrance on the corner with adjacent Patent St.

Immediately opposite the Lawcroft/Lilycroft Police station, near the tall chimney seen from most parts of Bradford. Meet outside on the corner with the adjacent Patent Street. There is free parking in Patent St. By bus: take the 621 bus (towards Haworth Road direction, ask for Manningham Mills) from City Centre bus/train interchange (takes about 12 mins) half hourly frequency on Sundays. Bus stop for alighting is immediately opposite the 5/6 storey Mill. No entrance to the Mills nor its facilities is possible on the day. Note that if walking from Frizinghall rail station it is a good half/two thirds of a mile uphill walk (& no direct bus link) to the walk start.
