    Fab old film of places I know well. Your description is inaccurate. The opening shot is of Shipley, not Bradford. That section of road is known locally as "Fox Corner' after the pub on the left-demolished in the early 1970's. The mill visited by their Majesties is the famous Salts Mill in Saltaire. The royal motorcade exits the village via Victoria Road and turns right onto the main Bradford-Keighley road.
