Rothwell is an affluent market town in the south east of the City of Leeds metropolitan borough in West Yorkshire, England.Rothwell has a population of 21,010, and the Rothwell ward has an estimated population of 32,365. The town has benefited from recent improvements in the transport infrastructure, most notably the nearby A1/M1 link road. Rothwell is part of the West Yorkshire Urban Area. The nearest railway station is Woodlesford.HistoryRothwell is mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book ("Rodewelle"), at a time famed for being the site of a royal hunting lodge at Rothwell Castle, off Wood Lane.One of the royal lodge's documented owners was John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster, who is supposed to have killed the last wild boar in England while hunting nearby; hence a boar's head formed part of the arms of the former Rothwell Urban District Council. The parish church (Church Street) is dedicated to Holy Trinity and is on the site of an Anglo Saxon predecessor. The current church, which has a ring of eight bells, is of medieval origins but was substantially rebuilt in the 19th century: the tower retains medieval fabric believed to be from the 15th century. There is some debate as to whether or not the church benefits from Chancel Repair Liability.
