Leyburn is a market town in the district of Richmondshire, North Yorkshire, sitting above the northern bank of the River Ure in Wensleydale. It has a population of just over 2,000, which is boosted significantly during the peak holiday season when tourists come flooding into the town before exploring the rest of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Like many other market towns in the area, Leyburn still holds a regular Farmers Market which also offers an opportunity for local business owners to sell their wares. Many of the brick and mortar businesses in Leyburn are locally around and some have been established for decades. Amongst the popular businesses based in Leyburn include auctioneers Tennants, the largest auction house in Europe, department store Milners of Leyburn and The Little Chocolate Shop.
The Leyburn Community Arts and Community Centre is at the forefront of providing valuable activities and meetings for all in the community. In addition to hosting a regular film club in the 64-seat auditorium, the Old School House also hosts classes in yoga, tai chi, ballet, singing, knitting and a local walkers group. With spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, quirky local shops and cafés, traditional pubs and a weekly market, Leyburn is an ideal base for walking, sightseeing, or just watching the world go by.
The surrounding area has plenty to offer adventurous explorers, including Leyburn Old Glebe Nature Reserve. This traditional hay meadow has been recognised by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust as being home to a number of interesting species, such as the Green-winged and Burnt-tip orchid. Leyburn’s other attractions include the Wensleydale Railway, whose heritage line services stop at the town’s railway station, the stunning medieval Bolton Castle on the outskirts and the unbelievably quirky ‘folly’ known as The Forbidden Corner.
Leyburn Waste Statistics
Leyburn’s waste is managed by Richmondshire District Council which covers 25 smaller towns, hamlets and villages, comprising a total population of around 51,500 people. At one time Richmondshire District Council was one of the leading authorities regarding the percentage of household waste going to reuse, recycling or composting. In 2015/16, the population of Richmondshire send 52.4% of their total household waste for reuse, just under 2 percent less than the national maximum and well above the national average of 45.71%. Unfortunately, the District’s performance in these terms has declined in recent years with 2018/19 figures showing this number slumping to 39.2%.
Richmondshire District Councillors have taken a strong stand when it comes to environmental issues affecting the world at large. The councillors were applauded in 2019 for declaring a climate change emergency and pushing through a series of motions to increase environmental efforts across the board.
