Introduction

This page lists, and provides data summaries of, West Riding of Yorkshire place-names. Similar pages exist for the East, and North Ridings as well as for the entire shire.

A systematic search for relevant field names in all tithe awards for West Riding townships[2] was completed on 20 June 2020. Everything found in the course of this search has a page of its own in this section of IRHB. Since all relevant field names (as well as place-names) found in Smith's Place-Names of the West Riding of Yorkshire[3] are also included, it is perhaps not too optimistic to think that IRHBs' coverage of Robin Hood-related field names in the West Riding is close to exhaustive. There is still a fairly short list of place-names to be added from 25" and 6" Ordnance Survey maps.
