Set in the rolling hills of Bronte County (West Yorkshire), is the town of Keighley. Well-known as a past textile powerhouse, Keighley was central to the wool and cotton manufacturing industries. Lying in the South Pennies and on the confluence of both the Worth and the Aire rivers, Keighley is surrounded by stunning scenery, countryside which people travel from miles around to enjoy. The town incorporates a large pedestrianized central zone, featuring both high-street shopping outlets and independent boutiques. In addition Keighley has a thriving cultural and sports scene, with the 1913 Picture House one of the oldest in Britain. Properties in and around the town range from rustic farmhouses and cottages to highly desirable new-build developments.
