Ledston is a village and civil parish north of Castleford and east of Leeds in the county of West Yorkshire, England. The village is in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough. It has a population of 400.
Ledston is first mentioned in 1086, and on through the Middle Ages, in forms like Ledestun(e), Ledestona. The name seems to refer to Leeds (or the Old English precursor of this name, Loidis, which denoted a region rather than a town), meaning the tūn ('settlement, estate') belonging to Leeds. Ledston Hall was the home of Lady Elizabeth Hastings, daughter of the 7th Earl of Huntingdon, known to everyone as "Lady Betty".
Ledston Hall featured in the television show Most Haunted:Live on 27 October 2007 and was given the name "Wheler Priory" for security reasons at the time (Wheler being the surname of the last family owning the hall).
Ledston is also home to the Ledston Equine Centre located in the stables of Ledston Hall.
Prior to 1974, Ledston was located in Tadcaster Rural District.
