BBW Dating & Singles in Keighley

Keighley is a town and civil parish within the metropolitan borough of the City of Bradford in West Yorkshire, England. It is situated 11 miles (17.7 km) northwest of Bradford and is at the confluence of the River Aire and the River Worth. The town, which is part of the Brontë Country, has a population of 51,429 (2001 Census), making it the third largest civil parish in England.[1]
Keighley railway station is on the Airedale Line.

History

The name Keighley, which has gone through many changes of spelling throughout its history, is accepted to mean "Cyhha's farm or clearing"[2] and was mentioned in the Domesday Book, "In Cichhelai (Keighley), Ulchel, and Thole, and Ravensuar, and William had six carucates to be taxed."
Henry de Kighley, a Lancashire knight, was granted the first charter to hold a market in Keighley on 17 October 1305 by King Edward I.[3]
The poll tax records of 1379 show population of Keighley, in the wapentake of Staincliffe in the West Riding of Yorkshire, was 109 people (47 couples and 15 single people).[4]
The town's industries have typically been in textiles, particularly wool and cotton processing. In addition to the manufacture of textiles there were several large factories making textile machinery. Two of these were Dean, Smith & Grace and Prince, Smith & Stell. The former operated as a world-class manufacturer of CNC machine tools, particularly precision lathes, until 2008. The population grew from less than 6,000 in 1800 to more than 60,000 in 1850[citation needed] during a boom spurred by these industries.
The 1842 Leeds Directory description of Keighley reads "Its parish had no dependent townships though it is about six miles long and four broad, and comprises 10,160 acres of land (including a peaty moor of about 2,00 acres) and a population which amounted, in the year 1801, to 5,745."
The town became a municipal borough in 1882, but was merged into the Metropolitan Borough of Bradford in 1974 under the Local Government Act. The merger caused a lot of bitterness among Keighley people who resented being 'taken over' by Bradford and accused the city's council of neglecting the town.[5] Civil parish status was restored to Keighley in 2002,[6] providing it with its own town council. The council's 30 members elect a mayor from amongst their number once a year.

Geography

Keighley War Memorial
Keighley lies at the confluence of the River Worth and River Aire, and is therefore in Airedale, in the south Pennines. Its northernmost boundary is marked by the village of Bradley and its southern limit is the edge of Oxenhope. To the west, the town advances up the hill to the suburb of Black Hill and in the east it terminates at the residential neighbourhoods of Long Lee and Thwaites Brow. The outlying northeastern suburb of Riddlesden is sometimes referred to as a separate village, though strictly speaking it is part of the town.
The River Aire passes through northeastern Keighley, dividing the neighbourhood of Stockbridge and running roughly parallel to the Leeds-Liverpool Canal. The Worth links up with the Aire in Stockbridge and runs southwesterly, dividing eastern Keighley from central and western districts of the town. The Worth is lined with abandoned, semi-derelict industrial sites and tracts of waste ground dating from the period when Keighley thrived as a major textile centre.
Parts of Keighley are very prone to flooding and the town was particularly badly hit in 2000.[7][8] Since then, millions have been spent on strengthening flood defences.
Outlying villages that make up part of the town are Oakworth, Cross Roads, Haworth, Stanbury and Oxenhope. The two main settlements to the north are Silsden and Steeton. Although these villages are often referred to as separate places they do in fact make up the Keighley area, as recognised by the postal service and land registry.
To the north east is Rombald's Moor which contains many signs of stone age and bronze age occupation including cup and ring marks,[9] and as it drops back down into Wharfedale and the town of Ilkley, approximately five miles away, becomes the more famous Ilkley Moor.
