The History of Meanwood
'Meanwood' dates back to the 12th century and derives from the Anglo-Saxons: 'Meene wude', which was the woods at the boundary of the Manor of Alreton, east of the Meanwood Beck. Up until the parish of Meanwood was established on the 27th August 1847, farms and dwellings near these woods were known by many different names; including Meanwoodside. After the Meanwood parish was established, these woods became known as Meanwood Woods.
During the Civil War, a skirmish between Parliamentarian and Royalist forces took place in Meanwood. It is known that the 'beck ran red' with blood, therefore the name 'Stainbeck' became popular in the area.
As long ago as 1577, the Meanwood Valley was a place of industry, providing water and power for mills, dye works and tanneries.
A turnpike road that ran through the Meanwood Valley into Leeds was established in 1830. Public transport was soon to follow in 1850 and then electric trams in 1890. This enabled people to travel greater distances for work; encouraging economic, industrial and housing growth.
