  • Leeds is a city in West Yorkshire, England, the principal settlement in the City of Leeds metropolitan district. In the 2011 census the City of Leeds had an estimated population of 757,700 making it the third largest city in the United Kingdom. The 2011 census also showed that the West Yorkshire Urban Area had a population of 1,777,934, whilst the Leeds City Region, an economic area with Leeds at its core, had a population of 3,000,000 Historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire, the history of Leeds can be traced to the 5th century when the Kingdom of Elmet was covered by the forest of "Loidis", the origin of the name Leeds. The name has been applied to many administrative entities over the centuries. It changed from being the appellation of a small manorial borough, in the 13th century, through several incarnations, to being the name attached to the present metropolitan borough. In the 17th and 18th centuries Leeds became a major centre for the production and trading of wool. Then, during the Industrial Revolution, Leeds developed into a major industrial centre; wool was the dominant industry but flax, engineering, iron foundries, printing, and other industries were important.
