Potterton is a hamlet 1 mile (1.5 km) north of Barwick-in-Elmet in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. The hamlet falls within the Harewood ward of the Leeds Metropolitan Council. The hamlet is just south of the A64 road and so has access to junction 44 of the A1(M) motorway 2.5 miles (4 km) away with Leeds being only 7 miles (11 km) to the west.
The hamlet is described in the Domesday Book as being part of the Skyrack Wapentake and belonging to Earl Edwin. The name itself is said to derive from 'Pottere Tun', meaning 'The Potter's farmstead'.
