Flats to Rent in Horsforth

By Richard Napier Subscribe to RSS | January 20th 2012 | Views:

A friend of ours who lives in London contacted us last month and asked if we could help him look for available flats to rent in the Leeds area and in particular, flats to rent in Horsforth. It seems that he was doing some research about the area for a book that he was collaborating on, and wished to spend some time in the area to get a feel for the place. We looked around for flats to rent for him and then sent him a list of the flats to rent in Horsforth for him to choose from so that we could go ahead and complete the process for him.

Horsforth is a civil parish in the north west of the city of Leeds which is itself in the north west of England, close to Manchester which a lot more people will be familiar with. The name of the town derives from the words “horse” and “ford” and was mentioned in the doomsday book which was complied in 1086 by William the Conqueror. It was once famous for being the village in England with the largest population and got a town council in 1999.

While we were looking at flats torent in Horsforth we noticed that a lot of the stone work was very similar and when we checked it out we found that a lot of the buildings were constructed with the sandstone obtained from local quarries, and that the buildings here used more of this sandstone than other areas of Leeds. One of the things which I have always been interested in knowing about this lovely area is that one of my favourite singers, Marc Almond, used to be a student at Feather Bank primary school until 1968, the year I was born. I have always admired his style and his most famous song “Tainted Love” is still guaranteed to get me emotional.

The book which our friend was working on was related to World War 2 and the contributions of small towns and villages to the war effort. In the Horsforth museum is a letter from the former president of the United States, Bill Clinton, in which he thanked the people of Horsforth for all their efforts during the war. During World War 2, the people of this small village managed to raise £241,000 for the restoration of HMS Aubretia.

How often do we ever think about the history and heritage to be found in the place where we live? We take so much for granted and never give a second thought to the fact that our home town may have played an important role in the forming of history and that a place does not have to be world famous in order to be special and to invite the interest of people from around the country. I feel lucky that I live in a city where there is a sense of history, even if discovered when looking for flats to rent, rather than reading.
