Wakefield, central to West Yorkshire, is a city whose history predates medieval times. Indeed, by the Georgian period, it had become prosperous and its Georgian heritage can still be seen in the architecture today. Wakefield's traditional industries of corn, cotton production, textiles and mining have been in decline for many years and employment now centers around retail, light engineering, production and packaging. Coca-Cola has a large plant just outside the city. As cities go, Wakefield is small and only acquired city status in the middle of the 19th century, when the parish church became a cathedral. Enterprise has an office at 105-169 Dewsbury Road, Wakefield, about a mile outside the town center. Wakefield is a great destination because the city is relatively close to anywhere in Yorkshire you might like to go.
