Gone Up North

Another little jaunt away for the weekend. This time to Bradford in Yorkshire; famous for textiles, a thriving Asian community and the National Media Museum, which moved from London a few years ago.

We arrived late in the afternoon, and found our hotel fairly easily. A small boutique style opposite a lovely big park. Nothing really to write home about though. But adequate for our needs.

After dinner, we went for a stroll around the area. We came across two very large buildings that was a former textile mills. One had been converted into fancy apartments, while sadly the other one called Manningham Mill has fallen into disrepair. But plans are afoot to turn it into a fancy apartment block.

For further details on the history of the building and plans for its future can be found on this Wikipedia page

Here is a bit of an arty shot of a cobbled street that runs at the side of the said building. Something a bit different.
