Pontefract is home to one of the countrys
most famous historical castles. Built by the Norman de Lacy family
shortly after the Conquest of 1066, Pontefract Castle combined
natural defences with an easily accessible position, near the
main North-South road. Nearby is Nostell Priory, a beautiful
example of 18th century architecture by James Paine that also
boasts some of Robert Adams finest interiors and an unrivalled
collection of Chippendale furniture. Pontefract racecourse is
one of the best appointed courses of its kind in the country.
The motorway links provide good communications not only with
local training centres but also with other major training centres
in the country, notably Newmarket, with the result that the racing
is both competitive and entertaining. Also see Pontefract
