Allerton village as viewed from Daisy Hill, above Chellow Dene, Bradford, West Yorkshire

Once a "true" village in its own right, Allerton has now been absorbed into the West Yorkshire conurbation of Bradford. Nevertheless, the area still boasts a local beauty spot, called Chellow Dene (where two Victorian reservoirs in a wooded valley provide a haven for local wildlife - including herons and woodpeckers) and is close to Thornton - the birthplace of the Brontes.
