Just a few minutes’ walk from the picturesque town centre of Pontefract, close to open parkland yet within just half an hour’s drive of Leeds city centre, Priory Chase combines superb contemporary new homes with a real sense of neighbourhood. An exciting diversity of houses and apartments in beautifully landscaped surroundings makes this a special place to put down roots.
With its enchanting streets and lively nightlife, Pontefract is a historic market town with a modern outlook.
Locally renowned for its extensive choice of pubs, Pontefract is also celebrated for its fine racecourse. Now substantially renovated, it features modern refreshment areas and restaurants equipped with closed circuit television, to allow racegoers to follow the action in comfort. Other sports facilities in the town include the Featherstone Sports Centre located in the local High School complex, and the exceptionally well-equipped Pontefract Squash and Leisure Club, which offers eight squash courts, a gymnasium, a sports hall, a golf simulator, snooker and pool tables, sauna, solarium and dining facilities. The superb Xscape complex at Castleford, just two miles from the development, includes a 14-screen cinema, a bowling centre, skatepark and fitness centre, as well as its famous ski slopes, ice and rock- climbing and aerial adventure activities. For more sedate time out, Pontefract’s historic centre includes a popular library and a local history museum.
There is a good selection of local shops, including a convenience store, a butcher and a baker, just a few minutes’ walk from Priory Chase at The Circle. The alleys and yards of the historic town centre offer the range of supermarkets, high-street names and specialist retailers you would expect in a busy market town, and the timber-framed buildings of the Market Place are an appropriate setting for the twice-weekly open market. There is also a major shopping village and Freeport Designer Outlet nearby at Castleford.
Priory Chase is close to the M62 and within commuting range of Leeds, York and Doncaster. There are good rail connections to Leeds and Wakefield, with two rail stations within a mile of the development.
