5. Headingley Leeds – England Cricket Stadiums
This article is about the suburb of Leeds, England. For the cricket and rugby stadium, see Headingley Stadium. For the Canadian municipality, see Rural Municipality of Headingley.Headingley is a suburb of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, approximately two miles out of the city centre, to the north west along the A660 road. Headingley is the location of the Beckett Park campus of Leeds Beckett University and Headingley Stadium.
Headingley is first mentioned in the Domesday Book as Hedingelei or Hedingeleia in 1086 where it is recorded that Ilbert de Lacy held 7 carucates (about 840 acres) of land. The name is thought to derive from Old English Head(d)inga ‘of the descendants of Head(d)a’ + lēah ‘open ground’, thus meaning “the clearing of Hedda’s people”. Headda has sometimes been identified with Saint Hædde.However, a stone coffin found near Beckett Park in 1995 suggests there may have been an earlier settlement in late Roman or post-Roman times.
From Viking times, Headingley was the centre of the wapentake of Skyrack, or Siaraches, the “Shire oak”. The name may refer to an oak tree that was used as a meeting place for settling legal disputes and raising armies. An ancient oak, said to be the Shire Oak, stood to the north of St Michael’s Church until 1941, and gives its name to two pubs, the Original Oak and the Skyrack.
