History

The name Harehills was first used in 1576 as Hayr Hylls. Since the 1890s Harehills has been an attractive place to immigrants because of the cheap housing. As a result Harehills has become a cultural and ethnic mix of people.

Originally served by the Leeds Tramway route that travelled towards Chapeltown and Roundhay from 1891. The landscape at this time was covered by woods with little housing.

In 1921 (Montague) Burton’s was established in Harehills as the largest textile factory in the world. And the areas claim to pop fame came when the red brick terraced housed streets appeared at the start of the band Queen’s music video – ‘I want to break free’.

Amenities
