Living in Meanwood
The area attracts student and professional alike. Its transport links offer easy access to the city, making it a popular area for professional house shares in Leeds, while its terraced streets provide space for students looking to get out of the bustle of Headingley.
Traditionally an area popular with young families, partly due to its location close to the picturesque Meanwood Park, its popularity has increased in recent years because of lower rents and perceived value for money compared to Headingley.
Meanwood continues to undergo a period of transformation, the introduction of Waitrose, East of Arcadia, and Alfred's bar to name a few, have all contributed to its increasing demand for student and professional accommodation.
Captain Lawrence Oates (of the ill-fated Scott expedition to Antarctica) often resided in Meanwood. There is a monument to his bravery located close to Holy Trinity Church.
