Otley Flat Roofing
Otley is a popular market town in the West Riding of Yorkshire with a population of nearly 14,000 people, and while it is connected to Leeds via a parliamentary constituency it has its own identity and many proud inhabitants.
Like many similar towns in the Yorkshire region, Otley is soaked in history and was even mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. There are pre-historic settlements visible on both sides of the River Wharfe that bisects the town and Bronze Age carvings can be seen in the rocks of the famous Chevin, which provides the perfect backdrop to Otley and the surrounding valley. Otley also played a big part in the Industrial Revolution, with the proximity of the river providing a vital transport link for the textile industries which thrived there.
Lying roughly 10 miles from both Leeds and Bradford, Otley is within the Leeds North West constituency, and given this border with the big city there is the inevitable knock-on effect that housing is much sought-after, and like Ilkley a few miles to the west, Otley has become a prosperous and fairly affluent place to live and visit. With a bridge and riverside, regular markets and an abundance of friendly pubs and restaurants, there is a booming tourist trade in the town which still displays an unspoilt quality that retains its authenticity.
Architecture in Otley is typical of a bustling market town with plenty of history, and the town centre is part of a thriving community that has attracted the Tour de France in recent years, and is regularly featured on TV shows such as Emmerdale and Heartbeat. There are many diverse cultures in the town, such as Morris Dancers and brass bands, and there are also regular folk festivals and agricultural shows, living up to Otley’s status as a little piece of Yorkshire, bustling with charm, traditional values and friendly people.
There was a post war housing boom in Otley in the 1950s, with council house estates thriving, and private housing saw a resurgence between 1960 and 1980, with many houses in the area dating back to this time. Like any Yorkshire tradition, workmanship and quality are upper most, and flat roofing is no different. Serving both the commercial and domestic sectors, the values delivered are great customer service and high standards, but at affordable prices.
