Welcome to Thornton Community Partnership‘s website all about Thornton.
There are many Thorntons in the UK. Ours was the birthplace of the world-renowned literary Brontë sisters, and is now in the City of Bradford Metropolitan District, mainly in BD13, plus a few houses in BD8, and one in BD14
The site is being compiled by volunteers. We are aiming to provide accurate and comprehensive information about Thornton for residents and visitors. We’ve made the decision to make pages publicly viewable as we build them, so they will contain more information day by day. We’ll also date the last time we checked the accuracy of each piece of information.
Links to further information on other websites are shown in Bold and in green.
