Properties in Far Headingley & West Park

During the 19th century many of the cities wealthiest families moved to Far Headingley to remove themselves from the growing pollution of the city. They built beautiful solid stone terraces and villas set back from Otley Road, many of which remain standing today as a nod to the longevity and impressiveness of Victorian architecture. A lot of these properties have since been converted into high quality flats and apartments.
