If you are looking for a location which combines convenience and countryside then it’s time to take a closer look at Farnley in West Leeds, home of the stunning Stonebridge Beck residential development on the site of the former Stonebridge Mills.
Farnley is located close to the ring road (A6110) and Tong Road which is ideal for users of public transport as well as motorists, providing easy access to regular bus services and the motorway network. Leeds city centre is just 3 miles away and is well served by buses which run approximately every 30 minutes at peak times. Services also run on the ring road to a variety of other destinations. Proximity to Bramley and New Pudsey stations also serves to emphasise the excellent accessibility to public transport.
Parents with school age children are spoilt for choice in and around the Farnley area. Here is just a selection;
Lawns Park Primary (3-11 years)
Greenhill Primary (3-11 years)
Ryecroft Academy (4-11 years)
The Farnley Academy (11-18 years)
Fulneck (3-18 years)
Given its proximity to Leeds it is difficult to imagine Farnley as the gateway to an abundance of green space and open countryside, but this could not be further from the truth.
Whether it is a brisk stroll along Farnley Beck, a visit to Farnley Hall Park or time spent exploring Post Hill Park there is plenty to distract you from the rigours of daily life. Don’t forget the unspoilt beauty of Fulneck valley, but do keep an eye out for stray golf balls from the golfers who share the same stunning space.
Shopping and Amenities
There are plenty of local amenities, convenience shops, plus ALDI on Tong Road to cater for those everyday necessities, but for the full shopping experience the White Rose Centre is less than 10 minutes away and of course Leeds city centre and all that has to offer is close by.
Head in the opposite direction and you find the historic market town of Pudsey with its choice of high street stores and independent retailers. There is also the Owlcotes Shopping Centre with a Marks and Spencer and 24 hour Asda. Meanwhile, the busting village of Farsley brimming with bars, restaurants and the fabulous Sunny Bank Mills is only minutes away.
