The city of Derby has an important place in economic history as it is considered to be the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and home to the first factory in the world.

Located in the foothills of the Pennines, the West Yorkshire city of Bradford has a culturally diverse population with many immigrants from County Mayo and Sligo in Ireland and Jewish wool merchants from Germany who came to the city in the 19th century.

Bradford's textile industry has been in decline since the 1950's and many of its mills have been redeveloped. The grandest of the mills no longer used for textile production is Lister's Mill, the chimney of which can be seen from most places in Bradford.
