A NEW BOOK ON THE VILLAGE OF AVONCLIFF BY A LOCAL RESIDENT

Trevor Turpin, who has lived in the village for over 30 years has produced a book telling the story of Ancliff Square which was originally built for weavers. It became the Bradford Union Workhouse until 1917 when it was a Red Cross Auxiliary Hospital before becoming a country hotel in the 1920s. In private ownership since the 1950s, this book tells the stories of the residents as well as the building itself.
