A FREE talk exploring the history of a neighbourhood in the heart of Bradford city centre will take place in late February.

The History of Longlands - An Introduction, a talk by Jonathan Crewdson, Director of the Neighbourhood Project CIC, will be held from 10am to 12noon at the Millside Centre.

Longlands is an area steeped in history. It is one of the most significant neighbourhoods in the story of how Bradford developed, both as an industrial city and as a beacon for social improvements, yet it is seldom talked about today.

Hidden in the northwest of the city centre and often referred to as Chain Street, this district boasts some fantastic amenities and examples of built heritage including the Castle Hotel, Perkin House, the New Beehive Inn and St Patrick’s Church.

It was for decades host to the city’s Irish Club and has been the subject of major regeneration in recent years.

This session is free including refreshments and will take place at the Millside Centre on Grattan Road, on the edge of Longlands.

Please arrive before 10am for registration. To book on this event, send an email to mail@neighbourhoodproject.org.uk or telephone or text Jonathan Crewdson on 07422 715910.
