Founded in 1973
The West Yorkshire branch of CAMRA was created at a meeting to test support in the Black Swan on Thornton Road in Bradford. This was 1973. Some people went to the Black Swan in Frizinghall, and were redirected.
Over the next two years or so, the other branch areas we now know split off, leaving Bradford to cover the newly formed Bradford Metropolitan district.
Later the Keighley and Craven branch was formed due to the huge rural area that it covered. In the early nineties, Addingham was annexed by Keighley, with Bradford’s approval, for logistical reasons.
