The Leeds Intelligencer or Leedes Intelligencer was one of the first regional newspapers in Great Britain. It was founded in Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire, England, in 1754[1] and first published on 2 July 1754.[2] It was a weekly paper until it was renamed and became the daily Yorkshire Post, first published on Monday 2 July 1866.[3] It was published under the motto of The Altar, the Throne and the Cottage and was, from the outset, a conservative newspaper.[4] It dropped the extra 'e' from the name Leedes in 1765[5] and was recognized as being anti-Catholic and being opposed to Chartism.[4]

In 1865 it was acquired by the Yorkshire Conservative Newspaper Company Limited (now Yorkshire Post Newspapers).[5]
