Moor Grange Estate is a housing estate in the West Park area of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, which was built in the 1950s on reclaimed farmland. Work on the Moor Grange Estate began in 1955. It was originally owned by the local council, and was leased by the council to tenants as a council estate. Most of the housing on the estate is now privately owned. Moor Grange does not suffer the crime problems of other council estates (including the nearby Hawksworth Estate). House prices on the estate are high, and Moor Grange is considered a 'model council estate'. This may be due the affluence of the area in which it is situated. Moor Grange backs onto the smaller Spen Estate which is another council estate in West Park.
For details on the original planning of the estate see the Leodis website.

That thinks men honest that but seem to be so,
And will as tenderly be led by the nose
As asses are.”
