Wakefield is a city in West Yorkshire, England, on the River Calder and the eastern edge of the Pennines, which had a population of 76,886 in 2001, increasing slightly for the five Wakefield wards (East, North, Rural, South and West) to 77,512 at the 2011 census.
Wakefield was dubbed the “Merrie City” in the Middle Ages and in 1538 John Leland described it as, “a very quick market town and meately large; well served of fish and flesh both from sea and by rivers … so that all vitaile is very good and chepe there. A right honest man shall fare well for 2d a meal. … There be plenti of se coal in the quarters about Wakefield”.[nb 1]
West Yorkshire is a metropolitan county in England. It is an inland and in relative terms upland county having eastward-draining valleys while taking in moors of the Pennines and has a population of 2.2 million. Leeds, informally, is the capital of West Yorkshire, and by extension, Yorkshire. In previous years Sheffield (South Yorkshire) may have held the title, and historically it would have been York (North Yorkshire), however Leeds (city) has developed into the third biggest in the UK by population after London and Birmingham. As well as this, the Leeds-Bradford metropolitan county a.k.a urban area has grown to become the 4th largest in the UK after Greater London, West Midlands (Birmingham) and Greater Manchester with a population over 2.2 million.
Remnants of a strong industrialisation in coal, wool and iron ore industries remain in the county having attracted people over the centuries, and this can be seen the buildings and architecture. The greatest hub Leeds may become a terminus for a north-east limb of High Speed 2. Major railways and three major motorways traverse the county. In the heart of the county is Leeds Bradford International Airport.
