Our new photo exhibition portraying the Bradford District, Among our Mills & Hills, opens at Cliffe Castle Museum on 9th October at noon, and will be on display until March 2022. For exhibition opening times and directions visit the Bradford Museum site here
The exhibition comprises 63 photographs, by over 40 of our club members, selected from over 200. Members of Bingley Camera Club were challenged to capture photographs reflecting their impressions of the District.
Sponsored by South Pennines Park
, subjects include mills and hills, the district’s people, architecture and events. The images capture a diverse range of subjects and styles. For some images the connection to the district will be obvious; others will get viewers wondering.
Helen Noble, CEO of South Pennines Park said. “The South Pennines Park is delighted to support Bingley Camera Club with their Mills and Hills exhibition. This exhibition gives a flavour of the diverse and unique heritage of the Park, along with our connection and relationship with this beautiful place. The packhorse trails of yesteryear and the image of people walking to the mills for work sits alongside today’s wonderful network of transport, Public Rights of Way and waterways to encourage people to get out there and enjoy everything Park has to offer.”
Liz Beckwith, President of Bingley Camera Club says: “Our club members have really enjoyed getting out and about in and around the Bradford District to take photos for this exhibition. We are so pleased that Cliffe Castle has offered to host this exhibition for local people and visitors to see, and also vote for their favourite image. The club is very grateful for funding for the exhibition from the newly formed South Pennines Park, via the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage”
The exhibition will be opened on 9th October by the Mayor of Keighley, Cllr Julie Adams, Robbie Moore MP for Keighley and Helen Noble, Chief Executive Officer of the South Pennines Park Trust.
