Bradford is a city in West Yorkshire at latitude 53°47′25.44″ North, longitude 1°45′16.20″ West.
Coverage within the ring road is quite comprehensive, thanks in large part to the mapping party (see below). Progress on other towns and villages is progressing well. There are large rural areas within the borough that may take longer, as there is no Yahoo aerial imagery coverage.

Nothing planned. If you're in Bradford and would like to organise a meet-up. Let's do it! Edit the page!
We did have a discussion with the folks behind growbradford.org.uk, who are interested in collaborating, and working with the council on mapping allotments. With some interest from users: Growbradford, Harry Wood, LastGrape/Gregory & chippy/tim waters. But we didn't manage to make it happen. That was in 2015.
