2004 Boundaries of Bowling and Barkerend Ward

Bowling and Barkerend is an electoral ward in the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Councilmarker.

Bowling and Barkerend covers the area immediately east and south of Bradford centre. It includes the areas known as Barkerend, Bowling, East Bowlingmarker, Swaine Green, Cutler Heightsmarker and Goose Hill. St Clement's Church on Barkerend Road has Pre-Raphaelite decorations by Sir Edward Burne-Jones. Note that West Bowling is in neighbouring Little Horton Ward.


It is bounded on the west side by the Bradford Inner Ring Road (Canal Road, Shipley Airedale Road, Croft Street) then the railway line from Bradford Interchange to Halifax until it meets New Cross Street where the boundary heads south east around the edge of Parkside (New Cross Street, Avenue Road, Parkside Road and along the edge of the Cemetery). On the south side the boundary follows the Outer Ring Road (Rooley Lane, Sticker Lane) past Wakefield Road then forks east on Cutler Heights Lane which becomes Dick Lane as it curves northward. The boundary then follows the Bradford to Leeds railway line west. The boundary heads north again along Birksland Street and continues the same line between Gledhill Road and Whitehead Street, through the grounds of Leeds Road Hospital and along the edge of the allotments to Barkerend Road. Then north east along the path marking the edge of Bradford Moor Golf Course to re-join the Outer Ring Road (Killinghall Road). Along the north side the boundary forks west off Killinghall Road onto Northcote Road then turns west along Otley Road. The boundary loops south round Undercliffe Cemetery and back to Otley Road, as the road turns south the boundary continues west along the edge of the school fields to Bolton Road and continues west down the hill to Canal Road as it feeds into the inner ring road.
