This Sheet Explanation provides a summary of the geology of the district covered by the geological 1:50 000 Series Sheet 69 Bradford published in solid and solid and drift editions in 1999. A fuller description of the geology is provided by the Sheet Description, (Waters, 1998), and detailed information can be found in the individual Technical Reports for the 1:10 000 scale geological maps. The district lies predominantly within the county of West Yorkshire, principally in the City of Bradford Metropolitan District. It also includes small areas of Calderdale District in the south-west, the Leeds District in the east, and the county of North Yorkshire in the north. The main population centres are the conurbation of Bradford, Shipley and west Leeds; smaller towns in the valleys of the rivers Aire, Wharfe and Worth include Keighley, Bingley, Ilkley, Otley and Skipton. The population centres are separated by areas of agricultural land, with scattered villages, and expanses of moorland.
