Shipley

Shipley is a town in West Yorkshire, England, north of Bradford and north-west of Leeds. It is within the City and Metropolitan Borough of Bradford but is outside Bradford itself, although the town forms a continuous urban area with Bradford. It has a population of approximately 28,162 (census 2001).
In Shipley is a World Heritage site: the village of Saltaire, which was planned by the industrialist Sir Titus Salt to house the workforce at his mill. Salt built the mill beside the Leeds and Liverpool Canal for the manufacture of alpaca and woollen cloth. Salts Mill is no longer used for textile production, but now contains a gallery, along with a variety of shops, restaurants and local businesses. 
To the north of Shipley is a wooded ridge called Shipley Glen.
The town is known to be busy as it is the main route for traffic between Bradford and the towns of Bingley, Keighley and Skipton. 
Windhill is the name of the eastern area of the town.
