Boston Spa village was established following the discovery of a mineral spring in 1744, however it was not until the mid 19th Century that the village became known as Boston Spa. Prior to this it was known as Boston in the township of Clifford and also as 'Thorparch Spaw'. It is thought that 'Spa' was added to the name Boston in about 1840 in order to differentiate the name from Boston in Lincolnshire. In 1753 the creation of a turnpike on the Otley to Tadcaster road allowed for easier travel to the village which had great importance to the development of Boston Spa. The turnpike enabled development of a more regular and reliable coach services linking Boston Spa with York, Harrogate and Leeds. With easier transport the area became attractive to rich merchants and numerous grand houses were built.
Now, being positioned in the centre of the 'Golden Triangle' just off the A1, it offers even better access to the local cities and is an excellent commuter village with a fantastic range of local amenities. These include an excellent range of independent shops, restaurant and bars, a doctors surgery, well regarded primary schools and a secondary school.
The village has an excellent range of property styles, from starter homes to 3 and 4 bedroom family homes and bungalows, so something for everyone and currently with a high demand in family homes there is fierce competition to get into the village.
