Leeds is the second largest metropolitan district in the UK; extending 13 miles from north to south and 15 miles from east to west. This wide boundary contains some 562 square kilometres – of which two thirds is Green Belt – and has some of the most beautiful scenery in Yorkshire. Leeds became a major centre for the production and trading of wool in the 17th and 18th centuries. Subsequently during the Industrial Revolution, Leeds developed into a major mill town; wool was the dominant industry but flax, engineering, iron foundries, printing, and other industries were also important.
Originally located in the historical West Riding of Yorkshire, Leeds history goes back to the 5th century when the Kingdom of Elmet was covered by the forest of “Loidis”, “Loidis” is the origin of the name Leeds.
Damp and cold homes can be really hard to deal with, especially during the winter months. Much of the housing in Leeds emerged during the Victorian period and many of these properties are still standing today. Victorian properties are prone to dampness because they were originally built without a damp course. Older properties are also more prone to damp problems such as ‘back to back’ type of housing.
