The Vision

Kirkstall Forge is a pioneering new neighbourhood in Leeds. Located within the stunning natural landscape of the Kirkstall Valley along the banks of the River Aire, this contemporary urban village creates spaces for a new generation to live, work, and explore.

Kirkstall Forge draws on the principles that have sustained Yorkshire villages for centuries: a sense of community, local pride, industriousness and a straightforward attitude. This is the next phase in a rich local heritage, bringing the area up to date for a modern Leeds community. With people at its heart, Kirkstall Forge will offer a broad range of experiences for residents and visitors alike.

A place to root and nurture your business, your family, your friendships. A place to enjoy life in a safe and stimulating environment; stroll along the river, cycle through woodlands, feed your imagination or stop for coffee.

At Kirkstall Forge, quality of experience will be matched by quality of design and the highest architectural standards. The buildings, streets and public spaces will be crafted with the same attention to detail, sense of proportion and material character that define the villages and industrial mills that have stood the test of time in Yorkshire.

With its own purpose-built railway station opening soon, Kirkstall Forge will be just minutes from Leeds city centre, 15 minutes from Bradford and an hour from Manchester.
