The varied landscape of the Bradford district can be seen in its breathtaking glory in these aerial pictures.

From Victorian terraces to rolling moors, the images show how the dramatically different landscapes make the district what it is.

Some of the most striking images are of Keighley – which grew to be a thriving industrial town surrounded by hills, fields and the moorlands that inspired the Bronte sisters.

Photgraphed from above are Cougar Park, the town’s rugby league stadium, University Academy and North Street, once one of the district’s most grand Victorian streets and soon to be under the gaze of millions when it becomes a route for the Tour de France cycle race this summer.

Saltaire, founded by Sir Titus Salt in 1851 to provide homes, schools and even a hospital for his thousands of mill workers, can also be seen. The historical importance of the model village is such that it is now a World Heritage site.

The images were taken by the Telegraph & Argus using a helicopter provided by Yeadon-based Multiflight.

I like how most of the photos are not actually in Bradford but around Keighley. You should change the title of the article to Keighley not Bradford.

And yes, surely a photo of the Hole is a must!
