Am going to be moving to West Yorks soon.

 

Any thoughts on nice place to live, not too quiet but good for young family.

 

Been told to consider Ossett, Horbury or Tingley. Any thoughts?

Traffic and commuting are pretty crucial up here.

 

 

Where are you going to be working?

 

Do you have to travel as part of your job?

 

How much do you want to spend on a house?

 

 

How old are your children?

 

 

Does your partner have a job to come to?

She will need a job but hasn't got one waiting

Maybe have a look at roberttown, scholes, hartshead moor area or maybe Clifton in Brighouse. Easy commute and bit of a semi rural feel.

:)

There must be a workaround.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Cleckheaton is a great little town, has good schools a large supermarket and rural aspects. The only drawback is that it's not on a railway line, but that's not a bother for you. Car-wise, it's the best commuter town in the county. Brighouse is good, and on the railway, but is much more expensive.

 

You'll get a 4 bedroomed detached house for £230k in Cleckheaton.

Hopton is very nice, on the edge of the moors, but handy for Heckmondwike, Mirfield, Dewsbury, Huddersfield.  The Calder and Hebbel Canal flows through Mirfield and Dewsbury, and there is the Spen Valley Greenway ( a cycle track on a former railway) at Ravensthorpe.

Don't know what your price range is, if I could afford it I'd buy it. A classic original art decco house with many of the original features ( I looked at it when it was last on the market 10 years ago)

Cheers. Think being nearer to Leeds rather than fax is likely. So anyone know what ossett and tingley are like?

Ossett is a nice town. My wife comes from Ossett - it also has an amateur RL club - Ossett Trinity.  It's a bit of a dormitory for Wakey and Leeds, and has no large supermarket - the nearest is Morrisons at Lupset (outskirts of Wakey) 

Tingley is basically a former village dominated by the junction 28 roundabout of the M62.

There seems to be a lot of traffic in and around Tingley. Very congested. 

 

Always have a look at the climate: in Ossett it rains on average 154 days a year, and average annual rainfall is 40 inches whereas for example, in Holmfirth, it rains on average 45 inches a year  but I can't find the rain days info.

Ossett or Horbury would be better than Tingley

Gomersal. Near cleckheaton and Heckmondwike, 15-30 mins into Leeds, next to M62. All the local amenities you could want.

Old housing bit more pricey, but if you wanted a modern house there's a big new estate with plenty of stock always for sale so prices ok.

Ossett/Horbury would be a slow commute to Heckmondwike.

Bear in mind that this part of west yorks is a great convenient place to be unless the M62 implodes at which point you need to have good knowledge of which roads to use and which to avoid.

Apologies - forgot to mention as highlighted already this area doesn't have rail links anymore though, if that's important.
