Tingley

Résumé
Tingley is a suburban village in the City of Leeds in West Yorkshire, Northern England, forming part of the parish of West Ardsley. Tingley forms part of the Heavy Woollen District. It is situated between the cities of Leeds and Wakefield. Most of Tingley sits in the Ardsley and Robin Hood ward of Leeds City Council, whilst west Tingley forms part of Morley South ward. Both wards make up the western half of the Morley and Outwood parliamentary constituency. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Tingley is situated between Leeds, Wakefield and Bradford but considered part of Morley. It has the WF3 (Wakefield) postcode area while the village telephone numbers are "0113", the Leeds prefix. The name Tingley is first attested in the thirteenth century, and on through the Middle Ages, in forms such as Thing(e)law(e), and Tinglawe in 1608. The name comes from Old English þing ('meeting, assembly') and hlāw ('mound, hill, burial mound'). Thus it was probably the meeting place for Morley Wapentake. Just to the north of Tingley, at the northern end of East and West Ardsley parish, lies Dunningley, whose name is first attested around 1200 in the forms Duninglau and Duninglaue. Like Tingley and Ardsley, this came comes from a personal name followed by Old English hlǣw ('hill, mound'). In this case the name was Dun, and was followed by the element -ing- which in this instance is an Old English suffix indicating the connection between the name-bearer and the landscape feature. Thus the name once meant 'Dun's hill' or 'Dun's (burial) mound'. Tingley was part of the Ardsley Urban district 1894–1937, which also included West Ardsley and East Ardsley and was then part of Morley Municipal borough 1937–1974. The village once formed part of the former Municipal Borough of Morley, and is still classed as part of Morley in the census. However, it is technically separate, and is not governed by Morley Town Council. Tingley is split into two Leeds City Council wards, Morley South and Ardsley and Robin Hood.
