Horsforth is a suburb of Leeds with a population of nearly 19,000 according to a 2011 census. Originally, Horsforth was considered a separate village but was made an official part of the metropolitan borough of Leeds in 1974.
Lying just five miles North West of the city centre, Horsforth has good commuter links into Leeds, but is also accessible to nearby areas such as Guiseley, Pudsey, Shipley, Bradford, Otley, Harrogate and Skipton. With its own train station, Horsforth residents have no excuse for not exploring the local area and escaping into the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on their doorstep.
There is evidence of Horsforth in the 1086 Domesday book, where it was referred to as Horseford, but with the proximity of both the River Aire and Leeds/Liverpool Canal the area became prominent in the 19th century when it aided transportation for the woollen trade. Today its proximity to Leeds Bradford Airport has made Horsforth an important link in what makes the area prosperous and progressive.
Horsforth property boom
Horsforth has a thriving nightlife for such a relatively small place, with a healthy mix of traditional pubs and trendy café bars, mixed with high street chain coffee shops and restaurants and a strong mix of independent ventures.
Undoubtedly Horsforth is one of the most sought-after residential areas of Leeds, forming a mini property boom with neighbouring areas such as Adel, Cookridge and Pool-in-Wharfedale. Housing is a mixture of traditional stone terrace houses and sandstone houses built from materials mined in local quarries. There is also a mix of 20th-century built detached properties, and with such a thriving property market and a rush of young professionals, young families and older, retired couples comes a healthy interest in home improvement.
