Oulton, West Yorkshire

St. John the Evangelist, Oulton

Oulton is a village in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, West Yorkshire, England, between Leeds and Wakefield. It is at the junction of the A639 and A642 roads. Though now adjoining the village of Woodlesford, it was once quite separate. It was once part of the urban district of Rothwell.

Oulton Hall was built in 1850 and is now a hotel and conference centre.

Oulton's most famous son is Richard Bentley who became Master of Trinity College, Cambridge.

Much of Oulton consists of old, expensive houses. Most especially on Leeds Road (locally known as 'Millionaire's Row') and Farrer Lane. In stark contrast however are the council houses of Holmsley Field Lane, Green Lea, North Lane, Holmsley Walk, Holmsley Field Court, Langdale Road, Northgate, Southgate, Eastgate and Westgate.
