Dating back as far as the Roman era and illustriously described in the Domesday Book of 1086, Wakefield is most famously associated with its part in the Industrial Revolution for its booming wool manufacturers.

Built by William the Conqueror in the early 12th century, the ruins are now considered an ancient monument and are Grade II listed. The iconic castle also featured in William Shakespeare’s celebrated play Henry VI.
