Potovens Lane, Outwood, West Yorkshire, WF1 2NZ


Springhills, Potovens Lane in Outwood is a purpose built development of 33 one bedroom apartments, set in attractive gardens.

All our apartments have been designed with over 60s in mind, having been modernised throughout to create a relaxing and comfortable environment.

Each home is well appointed with modern fitted kitchen units and wet rooms. The scheme benefits from gas central heating and double glazing.

A mobile library visits Springhills twice a month and a hairdresser calls weekly.

Conveniently located a bus ride from Wakefield town centre, Springhills is close to supermarkets, local shops, pubs, clubs, churches, hairdressers, a fish and chip shop, chemists, butcher and a variety of sandwich shops.

WDH's Care Link emergency contact system is wired into each home ensuring access to assistance 24 hours a day.

All apartments are linked to a fire alarm which is tested regularly.

Local amenities

There is a doctors' surgery, and local shops on Potovens Lane, and a regular bus service runs into Wakefield city centre from the bus stop on Potovens Lane.


Across all our schemes we like to help create a strong sense of community, and we do this by bringing together like-minded people through our programme of regular activities. Residents can enjoy bingo, attend coffee mornings, or take part in quiz nights or monthly social outings.


Springhills has been designed to accommodate a wide range of people’s needs. As well as handrails, it also has a lift and disabled access.


At Springhills support is available when you need it. With an experienced Community Support Worker and our Care Link system installed in every home as standard, residents can live with the peace of mind that in the event of an emergency, support can be summoned immediately. Residents will receive the same service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year round from WDH. Residents can also tailor the support they receive to suit them, just speak to your Community Support Worker about what suits you and your lifestyle.


We know that your security is a priority, and that’s why entry to Springhills is controlled by fob access. We also operate security cameras around the scheme.


Springhills benefits from a wide range of on-site facilities for your convenience. These include:

  • A lounge
  • A laundry room
  • A hairdressing salon
  • A guest room
