BRADFORD Cathedral’s centenary poet has written a book of poems about Bradford.

‘Dark Angelic Mills’ is a collection of poems by Diane Pacitti, who was the cathedral’s Poet in Residence during its centenary year in 2019.

The collection includes over 50 poems covering a wide range of subjects inspired by the cathedral, its history, and the city of Bradford itself.

Diane said: “At a time when Black Lives Matter has highlighted Britain's imperialist past, this collection addresses the mixed legacy of industrialism. The book also shows how a city which once suffered violent riots now has creative collaboration between people of different racial and religious backgrounds."
