Bailiff Bridge is found at a lively crossroads where the main roads between Bradford and Brighouse and Leeds and Halifax meet making this a very busy crossroads. In previous years, most of the villagers did or had worked at Firths, the carpet manufacturers. But this firm has now closed and whilst some of the premises are now small industrial units, most of the old mills have been demolished. Parts of the remaining land still stand bare but there are also quite a few new houses too.
