Pontefract, West Yorkshire, has a lot of history going back to Neolithic times.

In 1400 King Richard II was slain at Pontefract castle. Oliver Cromwell besieged the castle during the English Civil War.

In 1649 demolition of the castle commenced but the ruins of the castle are publicly accessible today.

Pontefract has for centuries been a market town. The covered market is today in regular use for trading.

Liquorice grows successfully and supports a liquorice-sweet industry. The famous Pontefract Cakes are still made but not using locally-grown liquorice.

Pontefract Racecourse stages horse racing on the flat.
