“Bradford Communities”  incl.  Bradford  Faith  Trail

A gentle coach and walking tour with visits to Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh places of worship and a vegetarian lunch.

Saturday 3 May 2014  –  coach leaves York at  9am  prompt

We invite you to join us on a day-trip to Bradford, leaving York Leeman Road at 9am prompt, and Askham Bar (Megabus, near Tesco) at 9.15am.

 

We will have time for a curry meal and/or tea & cakes (not included), or a stroll in the historic town centre on what we hope will be a fine sunny spring evening before leaving Bradford about 7pm. (A ‘Plan B’ will be available in case of rain.)

This tour includes several short downhill walks of some 400 metres each. Please let the organiser know if you may need transport for these.

Those booking will receive a 4-page booklet about the Faith Trail which is also at  www.tinyurl.com/YPSfaithtrail  Please note however that this is rather out of date and some details are no longer correct.

We hope to provide interesting reading-matter on the coach to inform you further about places we shall visit.

 

Our day will include tours of the following:

  • St Peter’s Catholic Church
  • Abu Bakar Masjid (Mosque)
  • Hindu Mandir (Temple)
  • Sikh Gurdwara – with included vegetarian lunch
  • Lumb Lane Synagogue
  • Bradford Cathedral.

A side-visit to Cartwright Hall may also be possible as an optional alternative to the Cathedral. This will include exhibitions on the following themes: open-air sculpture trail, Ukrainian art, the Sikh Fortress Turban and Rossetti’s images of Jane Morris.  We will also try to visit the “Sweet Centre” which is near the Synagogue and has an interesting link with the latter which hit hard times recently and was bailed out by local Muslim groups.

 

Your fee includes coach travel, entry, guides and gratuities, as well as a vegetarian lunch at the Sikh Gurdwara. We shall indicate places to eat, as well as fine locations for sandwiches if you prefer to provide for yourselves.

The Yorkshire Philosophical Society accepts no responsibility for any loss or injury suffered while taking part in its activities. There will be approximately 1 mile of walking in total, including some cobbles, steps and gentle slopes. Please dress appropriately and advise us in advance if you may require assistance, which we shall do our best to provide. Participants are advised to consider appropriate insurance cover.
