Location Summary
Leeds is a city in West Yorkshire, England. The history of Leeds can be traced to the 5th century, when the name referred to a wooded area of the Kingdom of Elmet. During the Industrial Revolution, Leeds developed into a major mill town; wool was the dominant industry but flax, engineering, iron foundries, printing, and other industries were important. From being a compact market town in the valley of the River Aire in the 16th century Leeds expanded and absorbed the surrounding villages to become a populous urban centre by the mid-20th century. Leeds has a population of around 780,000 making it the third largest city in the United Kingdom. Leeds is very well connected by rail and air links to other parts of the UK and Europe.
