Our new website launches this coming weekend!
The Old Quarter is a concept to celebrate the heritage and history of Shipley, one of Britain’s oldest significant town dating to the Industrial revolution and the gateway to the Unesco world heritage site ‘Saltaire.’ The whole idea behind www.oldquartershipley.co.uk is to connect local businesses, residents, charities and community groups through a digital platform. The website is intended to be a hub to share events, information, stories and pictures to strengthen the identity of Shipley in Bradford. By doing this we hope that this continues to drive visitors to Shipley to encourage growth for the local economy. The Old Quarter represents the whole of Shipley and was founded by like-minded people who shop in the independent retail area of Westgate.
