LET’S MOVE TO …. WETHERBY
Not many people will know that Wetherby in West Yorkshire boasts a history which stretches back to the Middle Ages when the Knights Templar were given the right to hold a market on Tuesdays in the settlement close to a bend on the River Wharfe by King Henry III. They may also be unaware the town was sacked by the Scots after the Battle of Bannockburn or that it was used as a mustering point by the Parliamentarians ahead of the Battle of Marston Moor.
Instead, most will tell you about its impressive selection of pubs. The town’s history as a staging post means many started life as coaching inns catering for those making the long journey along the Great North Road between London and Edinburgh – and, as the halfway point between the English and Scottish capitals, Wetherby remains an ideal base for anyone who travels the UK a lot as part of their job.
Adjacent to the A1(M), with the mainline stations at York and Leeds and Leeds Bradford Airport only half an hour away by car, the town is certainly well-located for travel further afield. Locally, regular bus services also run to both Leeds and Harrogate.
But, as the central point in Yorkshire’s so-called “Golden Triangle” between York, Leeds and Harrogate, property in the area is also among the most desirable in the country.
With modern duplexes overlooking the river, terraced cottages closer to the town centre and modern homes in the residential developments to the west and north, the town has something to suit most budgets and tastes – just like the array of small independent shops surrounding the partially-cobbled market square. The town also enjoys the convenience of its own superstore, the Thorp Arch Trading Estate is only a short drive away while the famous racecourse on the eastern outskirts of the town brings visitors to the town.
The British Library (www.dailymail.co.uk/news) is among the larger employers is the area, particularly since the closure of the forensic science laboratories in 2012, but there are also a number of start-up and transport businesses based on the small industrial estate on the east side of town closest to the motorway.
Clarke Gable probably walked the streets when he was based nearby with the US Air Force during the Second World War and may he have found the unassuming Yorkshire town lacked a little of the gloss and polish of Hollywood. Nevertheless, today, Wetherby is home to many of the North’s well-heeled and remains high on the list of those seeking a sound property investment.
