|Yeadon is a town in the county of West Yorkshire, England. Yeadon is part of the metropolitan borough of the City of Leeds. It is home to Leeds Bradford International Airport.
The former Yorkshire and England cricket captain Brian Close lived in the town during his childhood.
Yeadon is the location of the oldest fish and chips shop in the world, established in the 1870s. It is located on The Steep, a cobbled hill to be found at the western end of the high street.
The Yeadon Tarn is a small lake located between the high street and the airport runway. Given its location next to the airport it is a surprisingly quite and relaxing place to go for a walk. Locals also visit the tarn to go sailing and fishing. Mallard ducks, swans and a sizeable population of Canadian Geese can be found at the tarn.
Nearby visitor attractions include:
The Chevin - a forest park located on the hill to the south of Otley.
The Yorkshire Dales national park.
