About

Bradford has a long and intriguing history dating from Saxon times. The city developed from a small market town to a prosperous city with the development of manufacturing in the 18th century and the growth in the wool trade.

By the middle of the 19th century there were 38 worsted mills in Bradford town and 70 in the borough and it was estimated that two-thirds of the country's wool production was processed in Bradford. Less than ten years later, Bradford had become the wool capital of the world.

With this growth the city expanded and new buildings were constructed. These wonderful Victorian buildings can be seen throughout the city and a particular area of interest is Little Germany.

Little Germany was home to the German merchants who came to Bradford in the late 1850s for the prosperous textile industry. Today these unique buildings form a collection of 85 buildings constructed between 1855 and 1890, of which 55 are listed.
