Keighley

You have to learn to love Keighley, it was a hard nosed, magnificent manufacturing town, full of mills, engineering firms, civic pride and contradictions. That was its past, today it is a town looking to find its future.

Cliffe Castle Museum is a gem. It’s free, full of treasures, set in parkland it’s a little old school but wonderful.
