A two for the price of one visit. Also attending the Chrstmas Day Geocaching Event here - so I manage a log for that and a log for this. I know that they now call it City Hall but when the flush bracket was placed it was THE Town Hall and as a Bradford resident it will always be the Town Hall as far as I am concerned. Very easy to locate from the information given in earlier logs and still appears to be in good condition. (P.S. the geocaching had mulled wine and mince pies so perhaps I should have said three for the price of one!)

Easy to find near door as per description. What a beautiful building.

There appears to be a datum cut to RHS of the FB. I wonder if this is part of the BM 325.54ft (99.22m) shown on the 1891 Town Plan? Probably not as no sign of arrow cuts.
