Bull Greave Beck
Discover one of Bradford's hidden rivers in this large-scale outdoor artwork.
Simon Warner’s mesmerising image depicts the beauty of the babbling stream of Bull Greave Beck, just off Cemetery Road and near where it joins Bradford Beck.
This six metre tall photograph, designed to be visible from Godwin Street, marks one of the sites of Bradford Beck, which runs underneath Impressions Gallery.
This one-off photograph was originally commissioned by Impressions Gallery as part of Bradford Bubble Up, a series of water themed and inspired events that took place across Bradford city centre on the weekend of 7 to 9 September 2018.
With thanks to ImageCo for producing and installing the artwork.
