Going Underground: How Sunbridge Wells Happened

From dungeons in the 1700s to an unlicensed nightclub during the swinging 60s, Sunbridge Wells has had what can be called an ‘interesting past’ – and now businesses have the chance to find out all about it.

The developer of one of Bradford’s most interesting building projects is to speak to businesses in the city.  Graham Hall of Sunbridge Wells will speak at the Chamber of Commerce Property lunch in Bradford on 23 June.

Sunbridge Wells is Bradford’s latest retail and leisure complex, built underground in the heart of the city.  It is based in a series of tunnels that have been disused and forgotten about for years, but now hosts a number of shops, bars and stalls.  The site is becoming a tourist attraction due to its unique features and history behind the tunnels.  The scheme is a labyrinth of passages and tunnels, making it unique to the city and beyond.

What Graham has done to bring this scheme to fruition is amazing, given all the hoops he has had to jump through; along with his ‘wing man’ Clinton Fitzpatrick, he will share this interesting tale of how Bradford’s underground leisure development happened.

The scheme is to be formally opened by Princess Anne a few days after the Chamber lunch.
