Solicitors in Yorkshire
Yorkshire is a historic county in northern England and based on its historic boundaries it was the largest county by area. In modern times, the administrative functions for the area have had to be broken down into smaller subdivisions such as South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. It is known for its Dales and Moors and is therefore one of the most striking and beautiful stretches of countryside in the UK. Although now divided for administrative purposes, the traditional boundary of Yorkshire is today home to nearly 4 million inhabitants. Yorkshire is home to some of Britain’s most well known towns and cities, including York, Barnsley, Bradford, Huddersfield, Middlesborough, Leeds, Doncaster and Sheffield.
Yorkshire has a diverse economy, reflecting its size and the inclusion not only of beautiful countryside but also industrious cities. Leeds is Yorkshire’s largest city and one of the UK’s big financial centres, with a history in textiles, coal and financial and insurance services. Other notable economic functions within Yorkshire include manufacturing in Sheffield, which is home to niche manufacturing from firms such as Boeing.
