A Keighley Local History Society web site is proving a massive hit.

The pages, launched in May, have attracted their 10,000th visitor.

www.simplesite.com/Keighleyhistory includes sections on the good old days', archives, transport, secrets of Keighley' and multi-faith/culture.

Material has been contributed from people across the world. Among them is local history buff Keith Spencer who has provided a range of items, including details of an agreement between a mill and a private landowner to run a telephone wire over his property thus allowing telegrams to be sent!

Jan Perkins, the society's archivist and webmaster, said: "Our web site is an excellent way to keep in touch with the society and learn more about the history of our town. Material is being added weekly so I encourage everyone to pay frequent visits.

The next in the society's popular series of Wednesday-evening talks is at Keighley Library (Albert Street entrance) on Wednesday, 7.30pm, when Paul Jennings from Bradford University will speak on "Yorkshire's Inns and Pubs".
