Frizinghall is a district in the Heaton ward of the City of Bradford, West Yorkshire, lying 2 miles (3 km) north of the city centre close to the town of Shipley, itself a part of the City of Bradford Metropolitan District along with such other nearby towns as Keighley and Ilkley.
Frizinghall derives its name from a type of rough woollen cloth made in the area (frieze), and the hall was somewhere in the settlement (ing) where the frieze was made. Others believe the name comes from Old English; The Frisian's nook of land (Frisian being a personal name) or from Furze-covered Haugh (haugh being an enclosure).
