The Cookridge ward also includes a district known as Tinshill where some of the local amenities and establishments have a crossover of names with Cookridge.

Moving to Cookridge

As mentioned previously, Cookridge and Tinshill are largely residential areas with mixed types of housing. This residential area has led to a good level of local and independent amenities around the area as well as nearby Horsforth and Holt Park.

Nearby school Ralph Thorseby takes its name from the 17th century Leeds born merchant and author who is widely seen as being the first historian of the city of Leeds. Thorseby described Cookridge as a village four miles from Leeds and three from Otley that was one part of the possessions of Kirkstall Abbey. He noted traces of a roman road and interesting paths in Moseley Wood.

I stored my belongings in this space for one year, and it was absolutely pleasant experience. The staff is extremely professional and helpful, and they take time to understand the requirements of the client.
Even after not visiting my locker for one year, the storage is in excellent condition even after getting it back. I would recommend this to anyone. Really good experience!

Everything was just easy and straight forward. I've used other self storage places in the past but this was just so much better. The manager Sarah was great and really friendly. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using them again next year!!!

Jodie was fantastic and getting the storage booked was really easy. The unit was perfect for what I needed to store over the summer.
