Frizinghall is a district in the Heaton ward of the City of Bradford, West Yorkshire,[1] lying 2 miles (3 km) north of the city centre close to the town of Shipley,[2] itself a part of the City of Bradford Metropolitan District along with such other nearby towns as Keighley and Ilkley.[3]

Frizinghall derives its name from a type of rough woollen cloth made in the area (frieze), and the hall was somewhere in the settlement (ing) where the frieze was made.[4] Others believe the name comes from Old English; The Frisian's nook of land (Frisian being a personal name)[5] or from Furze-covered Haugh (haugh being an enclosure).[6]

Frizinghall is notable as the birthplace of famous cricketer (and later commentator) Jim Laker.[7]

The fictitious town of Frizinghall in Wilkie Collins' book The Moonstone is near the Yorkshire coast.[8]

Frizinghall is served by a railway station on the Airedale line which has frequent services to Bradford Forster Square, Leeds, Shipley, Ilkley, Keighley and Skipton.[9]
