LET’S MOVE TO … YORKSHIRE
Yorkshire’s long laboured under a stereotype, often reinforced by comics. After all, who can forget Monty Phython’s famous sketch on the four Yorkshire men discussing the old days or Hale and Pace poking fun at “Yorkshire Airlines”?
For those who have never been much further north than Watford, Yorkshire may conjure up images of heavy industry – steel foundries and mills spewing smoke – or perhaps unsmiling, dour farming folk who struggle with the word “veterinary” like just about everyone in the All Creatures Great and Small TV series.
The thing is Yorkshire has always been so much more and has moved on a great deal since the 1940s and 1950s. Leeds, for example, is now the second largest legal centre in the UK and home to insurance and finance houses worth billions of pounds. Regeneration has seen Sheffield’s gross value increase by 75% since the late 1990s, with Bradford now following suit.
Historic York and the seaside resorts have benefitted from the “staycation” trend, capitalising on their heritage but reinvesting in new tourism ventures, including the revitalised Spa and open-air theatre in Scarborough.
But, most recently, the 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart put the Yorkshire Dales back on the international stage and cycling has becoming a booming industry in the region, with thousands flocking to the area to pedal through peaceful countryside where it’s still possible to ride for hours to the sound of not much more than the wind or maybe a distant curlew.
Property in the Yorkshire and Humber region is reasonably priced – at least in comparison to the south-east. Most Yorkshire estate agents will tell you an average three-bedroom semi-detached home will sell for anything between £170,000 and £350,000, depending on location. Living costs are lower too with eating out considerably less expensive than the south.
Indeed, the broad acres of Yorkshire make it an attractive proposition as somewhere to live. Despite the number of burgeoning cities, no matter where you are, the south Pennines, Brontë country, the Dales, the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Wolds or areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are never very far away. The M1, M62 and M18 and even the A1 (M) make travel by road pretty simple while the East Coast Main Line means London is less than three hours away by train.
Indeed, to a local, Yorkshire is simply God’s Own Country – and what better recommendation could there be?
