NOW that autumn is upon us, it's a pleasure to see the changing colours of the trees, from green to gold to brown.

This picture of Bradford Cathedral, taken in 2012, shows the building framed by trees displaying their last colours before falling to the ground.

The gardens surrounding Bradford Cathedral - part of the larger Cathedral Precinct Conservation area - offer a peaceful respite from the bustling city around it. As you climb the flight of steps to the cathedral, the noise of traffic recedes and a calm atmosphere replaces it. It's the perfect place to sit and relax.

Built in the 14th century, Bradford Cathedral was the third church on the site and the centre of the small community established around the 'broad ford' through which Bradford Beck flowed. It continues to be a much valued place of worship within the city.
