Senior Dating Bramhope

Bramhope is a village and civil parish in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, north of Holt Park and Cookridge, and north east of Horsforth.
The village is 9 miles (14.4 km) north of Leeds city centre. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 3,400[1] and it is in the LS16 Leeds postcode area. It is predominantly made up of large houses which tend to be expensive for West Yorkshire.


Puritan Chapel, 1649
At the Dissolution of the Monasteries Henry VIII gave the land to the Earl of Cumberland. In the 16th century the Dyneley family moved into the area and acquired Bramhope Hall. In 1649 they built the Puritan Chapel, which was taken over by the Church of England after the Restoration. The chapel is one of only a few built during the Commonwealth period. It is said not to have been consecrated but nevertheless was regularly used for church services until 1881-82. The Puritan Chapel was listed grade I in 1966.
When it proved too small for the growing population, St Giles' Church was built in 1881.[4] The original Methodist chapel was built in 1837 and replaced by the much bigger church in 1896.[2][5] There is a map showing the location of St Giles and the Methodist church here. Bramhope Cemetery, established in 1861, is in Moor Road,[6] but there are still some historical gravestones remaining in the cemetery of the Puritan Chapel.

Road and railway

Milestone near St Giles Church
For many centuries travellers to the market towns in the vicinity used Otley Old Road. However, it was the Leeds to Otley turnpike road, with its tollhouses, opened in 1842, which routed travellers through the outskirts of Bramhope. It is along this route that motorists today travel between Leeds and the northwest. The milestones along the road were erected in 1850.[2]
The railway came to the village, or rather under the village, with the Bramhope Tunnel[7] constructed between 1845 and 1849. The tunnel is still evidenced by the elaborate castellated northern entrance, many heaps of spoil and several ventilation shafts. There is a replica of the tunnel entrance in Otley churchyard, which was erected as a memorial to those who lost their lives during the tunnel's construction.[2] There is no Bramhope railway station. Bus services are listed here.


The first recorded village school was built in Eastgate where the war memorial gardens are now located. A plaque on the wall states "On this site in 1790 a Day School was erected by the freeholders and copyholders of Bramhope Township. It was also used as a Sunday School and Public Meeting Place. Demolished 1961". The school became seriously overcrowded whilst tunnelling work for the railway was going on in the late 1840s. It was replaced by a larger building in 1873 in Breary Lane, next to what is now the shopping parade. The present school, situated on Tredgold Crescent, was opened in 1961.


Robert Craven Memorial Hall
Bramhope has a Round Table, which organises activities to raise money for charity. However this area suffers its share of crime like everywhere else.[9] Bramhope has a cricket club.
Memorial hall
The large, red-roofed Robert Craven Memorial Hall, (originally the Craven Institute) 1896, was part of the bequest of Robert Craven, a local farmer. It is now the village hall and administered as a registered charity. It has a crown bowling green, car park and tennis courts. Inside there are various rooms plus a large hall with stage, which doubles as a badminton court. On the second Saturday of every month a farmer's market is hosted at this hall.The memorial hall also hosts a yearly flower show in the autumn,[14] and a bridge club.
