In West Yorkshire, England, Wakefield is located. Wakefield is on the River Calder and Pennines eastern edge. In 2001 Wakefield had a population of around 77,512. It increased for five Wakefield wards called East, North, South, West and Rural to 77,512 according to 2011 census. Wakefield is also dubbed as ‘ Merrie City’ in Middle Ages. John Leland in 1538 described it as ‘ A quick market town and large and meately large. It is also a well-served market of fish and flesh from sea and rivers so that vital is good and cheap there. Wakefield Battle took place in Wars of the Roses. Wakefield became a famous centre for wool and a market town. In the 18th century, Wakefield made a trade in corn and textiles. In 1888 parish church of Wakefield acquired Cathedral status. It also became a county town of West Riding of Yorkshire. It was the seat of West Riding County Council from 1889 till 1974.


Along with railroad, many streams and lakes also played a significant role in economic growth of Wakefield. There were many damn and around twenty mill sites that include fulling mills, gristmills and carding mills along these waterways. Due to this development growing population expanded in seven separate villages, East Wakefield, South Wakefield, North Wakefield, Burleyville Wakefield corner, Sanbornville and Union.

At the beginning of 1900’s railroading was to the extreme with 25 trains in and out of Sanbornville every day.

In 1911, due to fire various rail yard buildings burned and operations centre shifted to Dover. After the emergence of electrification, need for ice reduced. The Later popularity of automobiles further reduced the need for rail travel. Finally, in 1969, Snow train which was a passenger train, made its final run.

During Second half of 20th century, a major industry in Wakefield was the development of 11 lakes. Development of summer homes and services needed to be provided. This helped later to provide incomes to many Wakefield residents. It helped to retain the rural character of Wakefield for which Wakefield is known.
