Scarcroft named as one of "poshest" villages in Britain

The north Leeds village of Scarcroft has been named as one of the "poshest villages in Britain." Based on search by global real estate agents Savills, The Telegraph newspaper named the most desirable villages in each ceremonial county across Britain. The poshest village in each of Yorkshire’s four counties was revealed by the publication and, in West Yorkshire, Scarcroft bagged the top spot on the list. Among the "posh appeal" reasons listed as to why it was crowned the winner was its good schools, good horse riding facilities and Scarcroft Golf Club. The paper said: "In the countryside on the outskirts of Leeds, this village has a golf club, primary school and a pub (the Inn at Scarcroft, which dates back to 1852) and backs onto Hetchell Wood Nature Reserve. "It’s a horse racing hub with the Hellwood Racing Stables and a riding centre at Scarcroft Hall."
