Keighley (pronounced /ˈkiːθli/ ( listen) KEETH-lee) is a town and civil parish within the metropolitan borough of the City of Bradford in West Yorkshire, England. It is situated 11 miles (17.7 km) northwest of Bradford and is at the confluence of the River Aire and the River Worth. The town area, which is part of the Brontë Country, has a population of 51,429 (2001 Census), making it the third largest civil parish in England.[1]

Keighley lies in a fold between the fine countryside of Airedale and Keighley Moors.
