Morley (Morley)

Morley is a market town and civil parish within the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, in West Yorkshire, England.

It lies approximately 5 mi south-west of Leeds city centre, built on seven hills: Scatcherd Hill, Dawson Hill, Daisy Hill, Chapel Hill, Hunger Hill, Troy Hill and Banks Hill. In 2011, the town and civil parish had populations of 44,440 and 27,738 respectively.

The town is split between the Morley North and Morley South wards (containing the town centre) of Leeds City Council, both making up the western half of the Morley and Outwood parliamentary constituency.

Morley is first mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086 as Morelege, Morelei and Moreleia. Morley means "open ground by a moor", from Old English mōr "moor, clearing, pasture" + lēah "open ground, clearing". It also gave its name to Morelei Wapentac, a wapentake which probably met at Tingley.

The town was later famous for its textile industry, notably the cloth, shoddy, which was worn by both sides in the American Civil War.
