 History Bradford

`Broad Ford’, later known as Bradford, was first settled in Saxon times and by the Middle Ages had developed into a small town centered on Kirkgate, Westgate, and Ivegate. The ‘Manor of Bradford’ was first held by the De Lacy family until 1311, then in turn by the Earls of Lincoln, John Gaunt, and the Crown before being transferred to private ownership in 1620. After the uprising.

Bradford was devastated in 1070 against the Norman Conquest but began to expand slowly over the next two hundred years as the wool trade became increasingly important. The Civil War caused a decline in industry, but with the entry of William and Mary in 1689, prosperity began to return. The birth of the manufacturing industry in the early 18th century marked the beginning of the city’s growth while new canals and toll roads encouraged commerce.

In the early 19th century, Bradford was a small rural town of 16,000 people, where wool spinning and weaving were done in cottages and local farms. In 1841 there were 38 raw wool mills in the town of Bradford and 70 in the county and it is estimated that two-thirds of the country’s wool production was processed in Bradford. Less than ten years later, Bradford had become the weaving capital of the world with a population of 100,000, leading to the development of a strong manufacturing and engineering base and an important financial center that has since that was no longer prosperous. Industrial growth led to the rapid expansion of the city. Between 1800 and 1850, Bradford grew from a country town among woods and fields into a sprawling city that filled the valleys. The town center grew and its old buildings were largely replaced by new ones with lavish Victorian architecture still intact to this day. Bradford was granted city status on June 9, 1897, and became an urban district council in 1974. Although textiles have declined in recent years, the local economy has diversified and the region This sector currently has impressive engineering, printing, packaging, chemicals, finance, banking, and exports.
