Description:


Far Headingley is an area of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England approximately 3 miles (5 km) north of the city centre. The parish of Far Headingley was created in 1868.

It is in the Leeds North West parliamentary constituency and the Weetwood Leeds City Council ward.

It is situated beyond central Headingley, on the way to West Park and Weetwood along the A660 Otley Road. Like the rest of Headingley there are a large number of student houses and houses to let.

Features of Far Headingley include St. Chad's parish church, the Cottage Road Cinema and Woodies and the Three Horseshoes public houses at the start of the Otley Run pub crawl.

Arthur Ransome, author of the Swallows and Amazons series of children's books, was born in Headingley but moved to Far Headingley as a child in 1890. His father Cyril Ransome was a professor at the University of Leeds and had lived in Far Headingley before his marriage in 1882. It was at his house in Hollin Lane that the young Prince Alamayou of Ethiopia died in 1869.
