Keighley is the second largest town in the City of Bradford metropolitan area.

Keighley is a historic market town and has played an important role in the history of transport, finance and car manufacturing in the United Kingdom. Its connections to the car industry, finance industry and motorsport span more than a century and reflect the town's strong economic and industrial heritage. The town has a current population of 28,561 people and a broader metropolitan area of around 59,000.

Keighley's Connections to the Car Industry

Keighley is home to two of the most iconic car brands in the world. In 1889, the Crossley Brothers established their first car factory in the town, which soon became one of the largest and most respected vehicle manufacturers of its time. The Crossley Brothers began with the production of cars for the wealthy and quickly gained respect for their strong engineering, innovative design, and quality materials. The sturdy Crossley cars became a staple of British roads and the company also produced a number of military vehicles during World War I.

The Crossley brothers also established a new industry in Keighley — coachbuilding. Over the years, their company was associated with names such as Leyland, Daimler and Rolls-Royce and their vehicles were seen across the country in a variety of guises.

The second iconic car brand associated with Keighley is Austin. In 1906, Herbert Austin and a team of engineers and designers opened the Austin Motor Company, which became renowned for its high-quality, mass-produced cars. The Austin 7 was perhaps the most recognisable of their vehicles and was renowned as the car that powered the British motorcar industry in the 1920s. The company continued to produce successful cars until it was taken over by the British Motor Corporation in 1952.

Keighley's Connections to the Finance Industry

Keighley's connections to the finance industry date back to the 1880s, when the local Mutual Society, established by William Crossley, opened its first office in the town. The Mutual Society was the forerunner to Keighley's modern day finance industry, which includes a number of banks as well as investment and retirement planning firms.

The town's strong financial presence has been further enhanced in recent years. In 2018, HSBC opened its regional headquarters in Keighley, adding to a list of other major banking institutions such as Barclays, Lloyds and the Yorkshire Building Society with offices in the town.

Keighley's Connections to Motorsport

Keighley has a long and illustrious relationship with famous motorsport legends. From Jackie Stewart in the 1960s to son Paul in the 1990s and 2000s, the Stewart family has been associated with motor racing since the late 1950s. Jackie and Paul won a total of 41 Formula One Grand Prix races between them and Jackie was crowned World Champion on three occasions.

The Stewart name will also be remembered in the town for their avid support of the local racing team, Keighley Speedway, which operated between 1975 and 1981. The team was founded and tested by Jackie and Paul Stewart, who provided driver and technical support to the local track and helped fuel the sport's popularity in the area.


Keighley's strong ties to the car industry, finance industry and motorsport are part of what make it a distinctive and historic town. Its association with iconic brands such as Austin and Crossley as well as its support for famous drivers have been integral in ensuring Keighley's continuing place as a mainstay in the British transport, car manufacturing and financial landscapes.
