Keighley is a town and civil parish within the metropolitan borough of the City of Bradford in West Yorkshire, England. Historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is situated 11 miles (17.7 km) northwest of Bradford and is at the confluence of the rivers Aire and the Worth.

The Worth links up with the Aire in Stockbridge and runs south-westerly, dividing eastern Keighley from central and western districts of the town. The Worth is lined with abandoned, semi-derelict industrial sites and tracts of waste ground dating from the period when Keighley thrived as a major textile centre.

I am researching my family history and have always been told about a cousin who married a mill owner in Keighley. His name was Harold Verity. I was born in 1947 and his wife Margaret used to send wool to my Mother to knit for me. If any one has any information about the mill or the family I would be really grateful.
