Yeadon Sailing Club is a family orientated club with a good mix of leisure and competitive sailing opportunities located near Leeds Bradford Airport in Yorkshire. Yeadon Tarn is a safe and easy to access lake, located in a popular park with plenty of free car parking.
At that time Yeadon boasted two teams, Topenders and Lowenders. The two teams decided to amalgamate at a meeting held in the Old Victoria Hotel, at the junction of Sandy Way and the Green, in 1859. The newly amalgamated club adopted the name Yeadon United Cricket Club, ‘united’ being dropped some time later.
The former Yorkshire and England cricket captain Brian Close lived in the town during his childhood.
The legendary W. G. Grace played at the Swan ground in 1877 with a United South XI. Grace was bowled for nought by an elated bowler who was then admonished by his captain for removing the man the crowd had paid to see.
Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Yeadon was a clothing and mill town in the 19th century. It had a cattle fair every year on the first Monday in April and the Yeadon Feast in the third week of August, which was held on Albert Square at the top of the High Street. The fair continued until the early 1980s, when housing for the elderly was built on the site.
The club is very welcoming and I really enjoyed the 'push' that the trainers gave, to test boundaries and find the learners speed and capabilities.
At the time of the Anglo-Saxons in the early 7th century AD much of the Aire valley was still heavily wooded, although perhaps Yeadon stood out above the tree line. The place name is probably derived from two Old English words meaning "high hill", as -don is derived from an Anglo-Saxon word for hill.
Avro had a factory next to Yeadon Aerodrome from 1938 to 1946 which produced many of the company's wartime planes, including the Lancaster, Lincoln, York and Anson. Approximately 700 Lancasters were produced at Yeadon. The town retains links with Leeds Bradford International Airport, with a considerable percentage of the local population employed there. Aviation heritage in Yeadon is kept alive by the activities of 2168 (Yeadon) Squadron Air Training Corps.
Yeadon was part of the old, large Guiseley Parish but a church, St. John the Evangelist, was built in 1844.

Yeadon is a town within the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, in West Yorkshire, England. It is home to Leeds Bradford International Airport. The appropriate City of Leeds ward is called Otley and Yeadon. The population at the 2011 Census was 22,233.
Enrolment to the course is free and you can start learning today alongside your own practical sailing training.
The origins of cricket in Yeadon are not really known, but around 1850 scores of people played on Yeadon Moor when work ended on a Saturday teatime. Play continued as long as the light would allow.
Well done, keep up the good work and hopefully I'll find some time to keep going..

Both our shops are beautifully decorated and stocked with a carefully chosen, eclectic selection of books, stationery and pens. We are not in competition with the large chain booksellers or the Internet. What we offer is different; the experience of browsing among carefully chosen books, of having the opportunity to discuss what you're looking for, a book you have seen reviewed, the book you always wished you had read, the book you didn't yet know you wanted to read.
Between 675 and 725 AD there was a Christian settlement in Airedale and other Norse settlements followed. Viking settlers called the highest point in the area Yeadon Haw. The suffix haw appears to have been tautological, as it was likely derived from the Old Norse haugr, which also means "hill". When the Domesday Book was compiled, Rawdon, Horsforth and Yeadon were classified as Terra Regis – land owned by the king.
In chronostratigraphy, the term Yeadonian – for a British sub-stage of the Carboniferous period – is derived from the study of a geological site at the brick and tile works in Yeadon.
Yeadon has a developed town centre and most of the businesses are situated around the High Street. There is a Morrisons supermarket as well as several other chains of shops, such as KC's Express (est. 1994). There are also banks, building societies, estate agents and public houses. There are also both Travelodge and Premier Travel Inn hotels situated near the airport.
