Headingley is a suburb of Leeds, two miles from the city centre.
Back in the Viking times Headingley was the centre of the ‘shire oak’ Skyrack. This reference is to an oak tree that was a meeting place for deciding legal disputes.
More recently Headingley was a village detached from the city mass of Leeds. With the advent of the industrial revolution the area became a rich suburb for people seeking to escape the city's pollution.
Headingley is world famous for Headingley Stadium – one of the only joint international stadiums in the world that hosts international cricket and rugby league.
