Eastfield Lodge Welcomes you to Leyburn & wensleydale
Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park
The market town of Leyburn has developed as the traditional centre for mid-Wensleydale shopping and trade. There is a full range of independently owned shops and services and plentiful accommodation.
The town of Leyburn has got a 6000-square-foot Antiques centre on Harmby Road. The town also has a local market in the town centre every Friday and a farmers’ market which specialises in local meats once a month.
Leyburn ‘Shawl’, just a short walk from the Market Place, gives superb views over Wensleydale.Leyburn is linked to Middleham, 2 miles away, by one of the most unusual river bridges in England, built in 1829 as one of the first examples of a suspension bridge.
Leyburn has a population of 2208 (2001 census) but this swells in summer due to its picturesque position in proximity to the Yorkshire Dales national park. It contains a range of public services, with two primary schools, and a secondary school which serves lower Wensleydale, a Police Station, and a medical centre. A wide range of shops are situated around a market square with a number of pubs and bars to entertain tourists and locals. It is home to Tennants auction house, a small independent department store called Milners, a Co-Op and Campbells supermarket. The town also has a chocolate shop, Chinese takeaway, Italian restaurant, two Indian takeaways, two electrical shops, a hunting shop and an art shop.
Although a small town, Leyburn is home to a railway station on the re-opened Wensleydale Railway which offers tourist rides throughout the dale, mostly on diesel multiple units but occasionally on a steam train.
