    Benjamin Russell built St James's Church in 1845 and the Wilsons, owners of the Seacroft Hall, were the main benefactors. This listed church was designed by Thomas Helleyer in the Early English Style. The 94ft tower has a ring of five bells and a clock face.

    Seacroft Green was part of the original village which was listed in the Domesday Book. The Green is England's oldest remaining village even if sources suggest it's older. The battle between King Oswy's forces and King Penda's Mercians were recorded by Venerable Bede on 15th November 655AD.

    At the North End of the Green there is Seacroft Lodge which was originally part of Seacroft Hall, now demolished, but the listed building remains derelict after being part of Leeds City Council.

    Originally, Seacroft was a sleepy village between Leeds and York. The main feature of the village was the green, which was mentioned in Domesday book, and still is known today as 'The Green' which is surrounded by a pub, the Cricketers Arms on the North side and St James's Church on the South side. The Methodist, John Wesley, preached on The Green and nearby there is a Methodist Church. There are also a Seacroft Village Hall and King George's Gardens nearby. Look out for some historic houses near The Green which were there when Seacroft was just a village!

    I more or less visit Seacroft most days in the week where I changes buses there for my journey home from work. It's also convenient for the Tesco Hypermarket incase I need to do some grocery shopping. The Seacroft Green Shopping Centre also serves as Seacroft's main transport interchange for the town and surrounding districts in East, North East Leeds and the City Centre by Centrebus and First bus companies. Transdev buses also operate as well as from Harrogate and the City Centre.

    From Seacroft Green you can catch Yorkshire Coastliner buses to Tadcaster, York and Scarborough.
