Although its name may not be as commonly recognised as larger cities such as Birmingham and Manchester, Leyland is an important player in the United Kingdom's automotive and finance industries.

Historical Background

Leyland's modern history is largely linked to the industrial revolution of the 18th century. During the early 19th century, the area was primarily an agricultural region, playing host to numerous cotton mills. As technology advanced in the 19th century, a number of small engineering firms sprouted up in the area, leading to an increase in the industrialisation of Leyland. By the early twentieth century, Leyland had become one of the most important engineering hubs in the United Kingdom, with dozens of factories and industrial sites dotting the surrounding landscape.

The Car Industry

Leyland's most important industry is undoubtedly the car manufacturing sector. The most prominent car manufacturer in Leyland is the British Leyland Motor Company that was formed in 1968 by the merger of several car manufacturers. Today, this company is better known as Jaguar Land Rover and produces a range of high-end luxury cars. The company's headquarters are located in nearby Solihull, just north of Leyland.
