Gildersome is a village and civil parish in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough 5 miles south west of Leeds city centre in West Yorkshire. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is situated midway between Leeds, Wakefield and Bradford.
The land on which Mill Lane and its subsequent housing now sits was, as the name suggests, a large industrial area, with Maiden Mills built on the site. Originally, there was a flax mill, but during an incident in 1914, the mill burnt down, and a new one was built.
In the 1990s, much former industrial land in Gildersome was cleared and re-developed for housing.
