Wakefield

Wakefield is to the south of Leeds in West Yorkshire. It’s in good company along with Huddersfield, Halifax, Bradford and Pontefract, though it stands out from the crowd quite literally, with cathedral city status and the tallest spire in Yorkshire. Your new home here will have city-sized amenities, excellent transport links and the sense of community that Yorkshire is famous for. This is one of the UK’s important manufacturing areas, with infrastructure and amenities to reflect that.
