(5/5 based on 10+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: fun & games
Burley-in-Wharfedale, is a village and civil parish in the county of West Yorkshire, England, and is situated within the Wharfedale valley.The village is situated on the A65 road, approximately 11mi north-west from Leeds city centre, 8mi north from Bradford, 3mi from the spa town of Ilkley and 2mi from the market town of Otley. The hamlet of Burley Woodhead, a cluster of farms and homes at the foot of Burley Moor, is 1mi to the south-west.HistoryOriginally a small agricultural community with likely Roman and Anglo-Saxon roots, Burley developed in the late 18th and 19th centuries into an industrial village with many residents employed at Greenholme Mills, cotton mills powered from a goit fed from the River Wharfe. The cotton mill no longer operates, but the goit is now utilised to provide hydro electric power, and a weir remains.The development of industrial and commercial centres in the nearby cities of Leeds and Bradford, combined with rail and bus links, caused major changes to the village in the early 20th century. Council housing was built in the 1920s and 1950s, as the village became a dormitory settlement for the two cities. With developments in the second half of the 20th century, Burley became a prosperous but socially diverse village. The village has a high percentage of elderly and retired people, and young families attracted by job opportunities, local schools and new housing developments.
