Keighley
West Yorkshire
Very much a working town with some fine Victorian buildings including Cliffe Castle – once a wool baron’s home and now a museum. To many it is the setting-off point for a steam railway journey on the Worth Valley line that stops at Haworth. Popular with shoppers with a large indoor market and shopping centre.
