The History of Headingley
The name Headingley is thought to have derived from the Old English meaning 'the clearing of Hedda's people'. A stone coffin found in Beckett Park suggests that there were possibly Roman settlements also.
During the 13th century, land from Headingley was given to Kirkstall Abbey by William de Poiteven. In 1341, the rest of Headingley-cum-Burley was given by the owner John de Calverley.
Headingley was a small, quiet village, until the Industrial Revolution. The rich would migrate to Headingley to escape the pollution of the cities. The Leeds Tramways was later established, providing improved accessibility to Leeds city centre. This subsequently attracted affluent and middle-class residents.
