An 1800 map showing Bradford Beck’s natural route through the town: a much smaller place in then.

Bradford Sculpture Trail 1

The Bradford Sculpture Trail leads you past public art around the city centre, much of which is visible from the locations of our plaques.


As you begin the Plaques Walk, you may notice some green dots set into the pavement. What are they? Have you followed them?
