From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

East Bowling is an area of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, located approximately one mile south of Bradford city centre.


In the centre of East Bowling is Bowling Park with its fossil tree, and the nearby Bolling Hall museum. Churches of several faiths fall within the area. These include St John's Anglican, and New Hey Road Methodist. St Ann's Roman Catholic Church was closed in 1996 and the parish amalgamated with St Joseph, Manchester Road. Bowling Cemetery is situated to the south on the ring road.

When the area was first constructed, it was a well-to-do part of Bradford, and built at a time when the city was thriving. In recent years East Bowling has become rather run-down. The housing stock in the area is mainly late Victorian Terrace houses, built around 1900, with some more modern houses.
