Pudsey is located half way between Leeds and Bradford in West Yorkshire. It has a fairly affluent population of around 23,000 and despite its close location to major city centres and the fact that it has been well integrated with Leeds as its outer suburbs encroach on Pudsey, the town has an identity of its own. It has always been an independent settlement and many of its features remain today. The high street is full of both independent and chain stores, and during the spring and summers seasons the streets are filled with floral decorations courtesy of the local Pudsey in Bloom team.
Many residents take pleasure relaxing in Pudsey park and enjoying all the facilities on offer such as a playground, skate park, bowling green and a café. Pudsey has a distinctive Town Hall and a few other key landmarks that make up its skyline. These landmarks such as Pudsey Parish Church, the Cenotaph and the former Trinity Methodist Chapel contribute to Pudsey's uniqueness as well as helping out visitors when provided with directions.
