Living in Leyland: The Local Area Guide

Leyland is a town in Lancashire, in the North West of England. It belongs to the wider district of South Ribble and is around 6 miles from the nearest city, Preston.

For many centuries, Leyland was simply unploughed fields (the name translates from Anglo-Saxon as ‘untilled land’) and was not even settled very much by the Romans. It wasn’t until after 1066 and the Norman invasion that it became an important agricultural spot, becoming more urbanised slowly over time. There are still some remnants of these times, including the St Andrew’s Parish Church which was constructed around the year 1200.

It wasn’t until the latter part of the Industrial Revolution, however, that Leyland began to expand quickly. Industry popped up within a few decades, with Leyland Motors becoming a major employer through the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, eventually becoming the British Leyland company and owning motor brands such as Rover and BMC.

Leyland still attracts a lot of businesses today, including some major utility and maintenance companies, and it is supported by Economic Regeneration as it develops and prospers. Agriculture also remains a very important part of the local economy and way of life.

Demographics

Leyland’s population was about 35,600 at the time of the 2011 census. The mean age is 40.8, which is about 1.5 years above the national average, and the median age is 42. Just under a fifth of people are over the age of 65 and about 17% are children up to the age of 15.

Unlike many other towns of its size in the North of England, Leyland is relatively economically prosperous, thanks to the influence of local businesses. When judged by social grade, which is awarded based on the occupation of the main household earner, 22.6% of households are classed as AB and 33.2% C1. That compares to 20.2% and 30.1% for the rest of Lancashire.

Furthermore, unemployment is relatively low. Only 2% of people claim Jobseeker’s Allowance, which is less than the 2.8% for Lancashire as a whole, and significantly less than the rate for England, which is 3.3%. This may be related to the fact that education rates are relatively high, with more than a quarter of people having been educated to Level 4 or higher.

This relative economy prosperity, along with fairly low house prices, means that home ownership is very high. Very nearly 80% of households are owner occupied, being owned outright or with a mortgage. The rate for England as a whole is just 63% and for Lancashire 71%. Only around 8.3% of households in Leyland are privately rented, below the national average, and just over 10% are used as social housing.

Education

The secondary (or ‘high’) schools in Leyland are Academ@Worden (the smallest), St Mary’s Catholic High School. Wellfield High School in the town centre and Balshaw’s CE High School, which is by far the biggest with around 900 pupils.

Balshaw’s CE High School was established in 1931, is co-educational and in its latest Ofsted inspection was rated ‘outstanding’.

Once pupils graduate high school they often move on to Runshaw College for further education, which has more than 8,000 students and an outstanding reputation among the locals and inspectors alike.

Transport

Leyland has had a railway station since 1838 when the civic centre was moved for a short while to make room for its two platforms. Today it is on the West Coast Main Line and has some excellent links for travellers and commuters. Preston and Lancaster are 5 and 30 minutes away respectively, and more major cities are also within fairly easy reach.

Leyland has several major motorways around it, with the M6 running north-south and the M55, M61, and M65 providing further connections. This makes traveling by car exceptionally quick and convenient. The town also has a fairly regular bus service, run by Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire.

Amenities and Shopping

Leyland’s town centre is populated with a large selection of small, independent shops selling local and artisan goods. As well as this, Leyland Market is open every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday.

Shoppers will find that the town doesn’t have a large selection of high street retailers and fashionable brands, but with Preston only a 5 minute train ride away this isn’t much of a problem.
