Working with the young people of Bradford and Keighley to bring local history alive for the whole community

We are delighted to announce the launch of the exciting new My Place initiative, a project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and being run by West Yorkshire Joint Services Community Engagement team in partnership with Bradford MDC Museums.

Over the next two years, the My Place project will engage young people in Bradford and Keighley in their local and family histories around the sites of Bolling Hall and Cliffe Castle. We have a packed schedule of topic-based school workshops, drama intrepretation, oral history collection, archaeological digs and celebration events.

Visit our other pages to hear some of the oral history collections produced by school students and take a look at galleries of our activities. Keep checking back as we'll be adding more material as the weeks go by!

There is so much to get involved in. If you would like to know more, read on and get in touch with project officers Hayley Briggs (Keighley area) at or Rachel Tapp (Bradford area) at
