If you are looking to sell, rent, or let a property in Morley, the town has plenty to offer to perspective buyers and tentants and is situated just five miles to the south-west of Leeds centre.
The name Morley is derived from ‘moor’ and ‘ley’ or ‘leah’, and means woodland clearing by the moor. The woods that gave the settlement that name in Anglo-Saxon times have long gone, but the seven hills on which it is built remain.
Morley was a textile town, famous for the shoddy produced there – a coarse woollen cloth using a substantial element of recycled woollen material. Coal mining was another big employer, and quarrying is still of some significance in the area, but these days Leeds, undergoing a resurgence economically and culturally, provides many residents of Morley with their workplace. The town is ideally situated for a short commute into Leeds by car but also offers great transport links with the train journey from Morley station taking less than ten minutes.
The Town is also a great spot for joining the motorway networks with access to the M62 and A1(M) by car only a few minutes away, so you head North, East, South or West without a painful trip to the motorway adding to your journey.
Morley has lots of fantastic things to offer. It’s high street shops and famous market attracts visitors from neighbouring towns across Leeds. There’s also some great little bars and restaurants tucked away if you enjoy dining out. If you fancy some shopping, the White Rose Centre is a few minutes away and there’s also an array of shops, bars, restaurants and a cinema just a few minutes away at Junction 27 Retail Park.
Leeds is a great city these days, with top restaurants, brilliant shopping, powerful educational resources, and a vibrancy that outside of London is perhaps only matched by Birmingham, Newcastle and Manchester, and Morley on the edge of the city is ideally located to benefit from that buzz.
