The History of Cross Gates
The name Cross Gates is most likely in reference to gates or a cross roads. Cross Gates was located between the ancient parishes of Barwick in Elmet and Whitkirk. For hundreds of years Cross Gates comprised of no more than one or two cottages.
The Waud family started coal mining along old Manston Lane in 1811. Further pits were built on Church Lane. In 1834, the Leeds and Selby Railway was constructed and passed through Cross Gates, trackways were made from the railway to the pits.
This caused rapid expansion in the area and industry developed. The Traveller’s Rest Public House opened in 1835, the first C of E church was built in 1848, the first school was opened in 1857 and a methodist chapel was opened in 1882.
When the local coal mining pits closed in 1882, Cross Gates became a commuter village. Since Cross Gates was seen as being remote from Leeds and its factories; it attracted wealthy Leeds residents who did not want to live in the city but could use the railway access to commute there.
