It boasts some major towns and cities such as Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield, Wakefield and Hull, along with York which is the historic county town and administrative centre plus major towns in Huddersfield, Halifax, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster. Some aspects of the region are also quite rural, with a much lower density of population and these rural communities have been the heartland for personal introductions over the years, as sometimes in finding partners, that rural nature can be a disadvantage and make things more difficult than normal. So both geographically and in terms of dating opportunities the Yorkshire and Humber region is very much a mixed bag. So please do choose your company or agency carefully. Our recommendations would be as follows: Yorkshire and Humber has a strong singles scene in the towns and cities, you will find Speed Dating, Dinner Parties, Singles Clubs and other dating events Online Dating will be a strong option within the region but remember there has been a lot of criticism in the recent past, with exposure on the TV and in the press.

This will see an end to the permanent 50mph speed limit and highways bosses promise congestion will be eased, especially at peak times. But how exactly will this motorway system, entirely new to the north-west, change our lives? Drivers on the completed stretch of the smart motorway on the M62 Read More End of the 50mph speed limit on the M60 in sight as smart motorway launch date is confirmed We went to the Highways England Regional Control centre in Wakefield to find out.
A hippie (sometimes spelled hippy) is a member of the counterculture of the s, originally a youth movement that began in the United States during the mids and spread to other countries around the world. The word hippie came from hipster and used to describe beatniks who moved into New York City’s Greenwich Village and San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district.
We truly believe — we are witness to it — that people are decent. What does it matter, argues Mary, if once in a while she turns up with her margarine tub to find that all the strawberries are gone? Everything we do is underpinned by kindness. They reasoned that all they could do is start locally, so they got a group of people, mostly women, together in the cafe. Incredible Edible is about more than plots of veg. Mary points to a housing estate up the hill.
Her face lights up. Three years ago, when Incredible Edible was launched, she did a very unusual thing: They get it now. Obviously a few town-centre vegetable plants — even thousands of them — are not going to feed a community of 15, by themselves.

Should have been very good, but let down by little things The Pack Horse Inn is one of those pubs that sits, apparently in the middle of nowhere, and attracts far more custom than it’s location would suggest. In this instance it’s partly due to it’s location close to part of the Pennine Way in an area popular with walkers, but perhaps also because it seeks to sell itself as a cosy, family run business that offers good value and a warm welcome as you can see from their website http: So how did we find it today when we visited for lunch.
Well there is reasonable parking outside with some limited ability to park by the verge opposite if necessary. Getting furher in was a little harder as there appeared to be quite a queue at the bar straight ahead. In fact the bar itself has three sides and the small crowd of people just inside the door were trying to read the blackboard with additional food choices. For some reason this is located just above the bar close to the entrance where it’s bound to block the door if a handfull of people try to read it.
Once inside the pub is divided into two halves, the cosier being to the right. The boards advertised that food was available all day with evening servings being up to 8pm and all the tables had menus. However it gets a bit more awakward because another oddity of organisation quickly becomes apparent. If you want to order drinks you go to the bar but if you want to order food you have to go into the kitchen where only one person is allowed at a time for health and safety reasons.
The latter is understandable, but it seems odd in the first place to expect people to go into the kitchen to order their food. They also don’t tell you in advance that you can order your drinks when ordering the food so like me, there were people who ordered twice twice the hassle and twice the wait by going first to the bar for the drinks and then on to the kitchen to get the food.
Next oddity – there are no table numbers.

Facilities[ edit ] The station is unstaffed, but a self-service ticket machine is provided to allow passengers to buy before travelling or collect advance purchase tickets. The platforms are staggered either side of the now disused foot crossing, with the Leeds-bound platform the more northerly of the two. Waiting shelters, timetable posters and digital CIS displays are provided on each platform, with automated announcements also offered to give train running information.
Step-free access is available to both platforms via the ramps on the footbridge for platform 2. The view from platform 2 The pedestrian crossing was replaced by a footbridge in Parcels headed for the nearby town of Rothwell were unloaded here.

Healey, Ossett At one time, Healey was one of several individual villages that made up the larger settlement of Ossett. Over the years it has gradually been subsumed into the larger conurbation of Ossett, but Healey boasts an interesting and long-standing history dating back to Roman times and before. Some of Ossett’s earliest mills were built at Healey and in turn, the area has seen large scale industrial development with William Gartside’s dye works, the Ossett Gas Company, the Healey railway marshalling yards, coal mines and sewerage farms.
The industrialization of the area led to a number of houses being built for the influx of workers who came to Healey to work in the mills and the dye works.

Industries[ edit ] West Yorkshire grew up around several industries. Bradford , Halifax and Huddersfield were grown through the development of woollen mills, Leeds’ traditional industry was the manufacturing of cloth, while heavier engineering industries facilitated growth in South Leeds. The woollen and cloth industries declined throughout the twentieth century. Many of the coal mines in West Yorkshire closed during the Robens era in the s, but mining was still a significant employer in the Wakefield district at the time of the —85 strike.
Wakefield has also attracted many service based industries, inparticularly call centres. Two of the big four supermarkets are from West Yorkshire. Morrisons is based in Bradford, while Asda is based in Leeds. Netto have their British headquarters in South Elmsall. Rhubarb The Rhubarb Triangle is wholly in West Yorkshire and still produces the vegetable in considerable quantities. Twelve farmers who farm within the Rhubarb Triangle applied to have the name “Yorkshire forced rhubarb” added to the list of foods and drinks that have their names legally protected by the European Commission’s Protected Food Name scheme.
Food protected status accesses European funding to promote the product and legal backing against other products made outside the area using the name. Other protected names include Stilton cheese , Champagne and Parma Ham. Film and television productions[ edit ] Several films and television series have been filmed in West Yorkshire’s historic areas, particularly around the town of Huddersfield.

Mamucium The Brigantes were the major Celtic tribe in what is now known as Northern England ; they had a stronghold in the locality at a sandstone outcrop on which Manchester Cathedral now stands, opposite the banks of the River Irwell. Following the Roman conquest of Britain in the 1st century, General Agricola ordered the construction of a fort named Mamucium in the year 79 to ensure that Roman interests in Deva Victrix Chester and Eboracum York were protected from the Brigantes.
The Roman habitation of Manchester probably ended around the 3rd century; its civilian settlement appears to have been abandoned by the mid-3rd century, although the fort may have supported a small garrison until the late 3rd or early 4th century. Although not long-lasting, Cromwell granted it the right to elect its own MP.

A jaundiced view of life from the darkest recess of the saloon bar Tuesday, 25 September Cashing up A Suffolk pub has claimed to be the first in Britain to go entirely cashless and stop accepting any payments in cash. This seems to be a rather dubious assertion, as I know that Sandbar in Manchester has been entirely cashless for some time, and Martin Taylor has recently encountered the same in the Cloudwater brewery tap.
It needs to be made clear we are not discussing cashless payments per se. They are a growing feature of the financial landscape, and obviously it makes business sense for many pubs to accept them. But to refuse to accept cash entirely is something entirely different, and comes across very much as an attempt to practice social selection of your clientele. It is estimated that there are 1. There are other reasons to justify caution in adopting cashless payments, some of which are set out in this Guardian article and this blogpost by Boozy Procrastinator.
One obvious point is that they make budgeting more difficult, both in terms of controlling your spending on a night out, and also in a more general sense of creating a disconnect with the whole concept of money. You are making yourself vulnerable to power cuts and to the breakdowns of banking computer systems which seem all too common nowadays.
You are also willingly putting yourself in the hands of giant, faceless corporations that may not have your best interests at heart.
