Bagley, West Yorkshire
Bagley is a village in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, West Yorkshire, England, once in the township of Farsley. The remains of the village (or hamlet) are on Bagley Lane, on the section between the A657 road in Rodley and the junction with Coalhill Lane.
The name of Bagley is first attested in both its current spelling and the form Baglay in 1344. The second element comes from Old English lēah ('open land in a wood'). While the etymology of the first element is uncertain, it is thought to be from a putative Old English word *bagga ('badger'). Thus the name probably once meant 'clearing characterised by badgers'.:19–20
