Photographer's Note

You may remember I had a complex that five years ago I moved to the town which had the title “the worst place to live in the UK”? Well I have followed the ranking and the city which in recent years took over the first place was Bradford. Before going for a trip there I have searched the internet asking the question: "How dangerous is it really?" One article tried to argue that in the most of the ten criteria which are used to define a dangerous city, Bradford is below national average, it is just for homicide and violent crime where it scores much above the average British level. I relaxed reading that.

I suppose the most popular spot selected for a postcard from Bradford would be a city hall. However since the percentage of Muslims in Bradford according to Wikipedia was in 2011 about 25% (Bradford is sometimes called "Bradistan") I decided to pick for a postcard one of the numerous Bradford Mosques: Bradford Grand Mosque called formally Al-Jamia Suffa-Tul-Islam Grand Mosque. It is still under construction and it was impossible to even cross the gate hence my photo across the wall. Here is the official website of the mosque where you can find more information.

There are not too many photos from Bradford on TrekEarth. It is definitely an off-the-beaten-track destination.
