The Barkerend area is not easy to define but it is surrounded by Undercliffe, and Undercliffe Cemetery, Bradford Moor, Laisterdyke, Bowling, Broomfields, Little Germany and the Shipley Airedale Road, and Wapping but includes an area of new and modern housing known as Pollard Park.[1]

Off Barkerend roundabout was the now partially demolished Barkerend Mills. These mills were established in 1815 as a steam powered worsted spinning mill. The street front buildings being warehouses with an arched gateway into the mill complex behind. More mills were added in 1852 and the last block (seen on the image left with chimney) still remains today, disused and minus the chimney.[2][3]

The area had a number of cinemas including The Hippodrome Picturehouse / Roxy on Barkerend Road.[4]

These buildings are now the Byron Halls luxury flats. Hanson School itself moved to the Swain House area of Bradford between Bolton and Five Lane Ends,[15] while Carlton Bolling became a college after moving to new premises in the north of Barkerend. Designed by Edward Prioleau Warren and built 1892–1894 in a neo-Gothic style with an octagonal corner clock turret, the grade II star listed St. Clement's Church* on Barkerend Road is most notable for its ceiling decoration by Morris & Co.[16]

The area has lost all but one of its public houses including the eponymous Barkerend on Barkerend Road[17] and the historic Cock and Bottle pub.[18] Listed buildings on Barkerend Road are the aforementioned Cock and Bottle public house,[19] the Church of St. Mary and Presbytery, Barkerend Mills, Butler House, the Church of St. Clement, and numbers 181 and 214.[20] On Byron Street is Boldshay Hall, Byron Halls and School House, Byron School and Olive School[21] and on Hendford Drive there is Barkerend School and rear range.[22]
