History of Chapel Allerton

Chapel Allerton is a suburb of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. Historically in the Easingwold Rural District and since 1974 in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, it is situated approximately four miles (6 km) east of Leeds city centre. Chapel Allerton ward includes the Chapel Allerton and Moortown districts and had a population of 21,316 at the 2011 Census.

The village emerged in the medieval period as a chapelry within the parish of Leeds. It became a separate civil parish in 1866 and was absorbed into the city of Leeds in 1933. The name Chapel Allerton is thought to derive from the Old English for 'the farmstead or settlement associate with a chapelle', referring to a chapel built in the 12th century by the lord of the manor, Robert de Alberton

The Chapel Allerton district was developed from the early 19th century onwards as a densely populated suburb of Leeds. Industrial growth in Leeds led to building expansion in Chapel Allerton, which became one of the first commuter suburbs of Leeds. The opening of Chapeltown railway station on the Harrogate Line in 1848 increased Chapel Allerton's appeal as a commuter district, and by the late 19th century it had become a wealthy middle-class suburb. In recent decades, Chapel Allerton has been undergoing gentrification, with property prices rising and an increase in upmarket bars and restaurants.
