Yeadon is a town within the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, in West Yorkshire, England. It is home to Leeds Bradford International Airport.HistoryAt the time of the Anglo-Saxons in the early 7th century AD much of the Aire valley was still heavily wooded, although perhaps Yeadon stood out above the tree line. The place name is probably derived from two Old English words meaning high hill, 'don' being taken from the Anglo-Saxon word for hill. Between 675 and 725 A.D there was a Christian settlement in Airedale and other Norse settlements followed. Viking settlers called the highest point in the area Yeadon Haw. 'Haw' in this sense is derived from the Old Norse word haugr which also means hill. When the Domesday book was compiled, Rawdon, Horsforth & Yeadon were surveyed as Terra Regis - land owned by the King.Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Yeadon was a clothing and mill town in the 19th century. It had a cattle fair every year on the first Monday in April and the Yeadon Feast in the third week of August, which was held on Albert Square at the top of the High Street. The fair continued until the early 1980s, when housing for the elderly was built on the site.The former Yorkshire and England cricket captain Brian Close lived in the town during his childhood.
