Goit and beck in parallel
Power in, waste out
From Elizabeth I’s time, Bradford people chose religious freedom and Bradford became a largely Puritan town. However, close to here stood a den of gambling, drinking and vice: a pub called The Cockpit. This pub was also used by John Wesley to preach to newly converted Methodists in 1756.
Beneath your feet, the Goit rejoins Bradford Beck. The Goit is a channel taken off the Beck higher up to provide a rushing stream to power a medieval corn mill.
