No’s: 14 and 15, Micklefield Lane, 14 is on the left.
This is next to Micklefield Mews, converted from the from the former Little London School’.
It wasn’t a faith (Baptist) school though it may have been used by them for a while.
Based on Quaker educational principles, as well as giving children (infants) a basic education, it also aimed at training them in skills such as weaving, knitting & boot & shoe repairs, which it was thought would help them eventually make a living. It was founded/financed by Robert Milligan who was a wealthy Bradford based woollen cloth merchant who lived at Acacia.
He became first Mayor of Bradford in 1847.
I think he also became a Bradford M.P.
He was a friend of Titus Salt who was the second Mayor of Bradford.
His business partner, Henry Forbes, became Bradford’s third mayor.
Milligan & Forbes also financed the former Congregational Chapel, Sunday school and manse on New Road Side (JCT600 roundabout), now Trinity Church.

The house in the middle with the big square bay window used to be a dental surgery.

The house I was brought up in. We moved from Lombard Street about 1952. It was converted early 60s to accommodate Grandma Ellis who moved from Gladstone Road after her husband passed. I left in 64 to join the army leaving mum, dad and sister Vivien there. After mum passed in mid 90s, dad continued to live there until he couldn’t cope then moved in with his daughter in Otley, before passing in 2005. A lot of changes since then!
