The Bradford Monk.

He is a mystery. A legend.
But this blog intends to report sightings of this charismatic character, post spy photos and discuss theories of his existence.. and of course answer the most important question... where does he go?!?!
Please let me know of any sightings or info you have on this bloke and stay tuned for more...

This guy has been walking round Bradford for years. I'm 27 and when I was at school he was walking, waving and wearing the same gear even back then. So he's been doing this for at least 20 years. We used to call him Jesus.

My parents have lived in Guiseley for 34 years and have seen him since moving there, normally around Otley and walking around the Chevin, and he's always looked the same, so he must have been knocking about for well over 30 years. But he's always happy and always gives a wave. A legend

When we were teenagers knocking about in our heavy metal clothing in Bradford centre about 15 years ago, he did weird stuff like walk round groups of us in a circle. Seemed kinda like some ritual / exorcism type act.

I have also heard tell that he hasn't altered in many years.

This is not the first Monk Watch scheme!

We have been pursuing the monk since Feb 2004 at...

Our team have finally managed to get a good snap of him (read above link). Our next mission is to capture him on video.

May the Monk Be With You!

I remember seeing the monk in shipley a few years ago at about 1 pm .I was on my way to leeds, at 1.45 pm i saw him in leeds, now he either uses public transport which i doubt,or he has the ability to teleport which i think is a more plausible explination.

I have lived in Bradford (BD4) all me life, I am 47 and I remember him from when I where a teenager, and he looks EXACTLEY the same. Back then we called him 'The Jesus Man' and he would always wave:) What is the secret? Is it the love of God or is he an alien? Lets disect him and find out once an for all!

I always see the monk when i'm on the bus and eh always waves at me as i go past, and sometimes i wave back. Everybody i know always says he waves at them because he's a freak but i'm not too sure. I used to say he's one of the many decipels.

I saw him in Brighouse about 6 months ago, he waved and smiled. I used to see him in Bradford in the 1960s. Does anyone know his religious status?

Faith? What is he?

A friend recently met him on a train going to Bradford. She asked if she could sit with him and chat, he agreed. From what I have been told my friend actually interrogated him.

When asked about his faith he replied "I have my own faith I'm not with anybody else". He also stated that he lived in Shipley. Interestingly enough he was also aware of his internet following (us daft lot).

I wouldn't want to publish the in's & out's of the conversation as it was private, however, in my opinion he is just an eccentric bloke who likes walking and he has been doing it for many years - he is not a monk at all!

I download tons of apps to my iPod touch, and they transfer to my dads computer when I sync it. When my dad syncs his iPhone, they get transferred to it. Now he wants do disable app downloading because he has to delete so many apps. How can I make it so iTunes doesn't sync all the apps I download to his phone?

I am 59 years of age and I first spotted this man when I was a bread delivery man around York .
I was 20 years old ( 1971 ). He looked older than me then and younger than me now . I've seen him countless times since all over Yorkshire and often park up to marvel at his run/walk gait .
If you want a photo he will stop and pose , if you want a chat he'll listen and forever has a smile .
Makes one want to beleive in the cloth ?
