What’s On In Wakefield

A visit to Wakefield offers a combination of historical charm, modern attractions and green countryside. Wakefield was originally the chief locality in a large estate belonging to Edward the Confessor and was still a royal manor in 1086. Shortly afterward it became a baronial holding. Wakefield had a wool market by 1308, and Flemish cloth weavers began to settle there about 1470, stimulating the local woolen industry. By the 16th century Wakefield, together with Halifax and Leeds, had become noted for cloth finishing and dyeing.
