It was the Romans who originally formed a settlement at the site of Tadcaster. Their name for it was ‘Calcaria’, which originates from the Latin word for ‘Lime’. They chose this name because the local supply of limestone was crucial for the quarrying work going on in the area. Amazingly this still goes on even today and the limestone has been used to construct many of the prettier buildings in the town.

This friendly little market town is dominated by the Sam Smith’s brewery

Tadcaster is located along the River Wharfe between York and Leeds. It is the final town you would come to on a journey down the river Wharfe before it becomes the River Ouse, which is several miles further along.

The Romans built a settlement and named it Calcaria from the Latin word for lime, reflecting the importance of the area's limestone geology as a natural resource for quarrying, an industry which continues and has contributed to many notable buildings including York Minster. Calcaria was an important staging post that grew at the crossing of the River Wharfe on the road to Eboracum (York).[citation needed]

It is the last town the River Wharfe passes before it joins the River Ouse about 10 miles (16 km) downstream. It is in the shire county of North Yorkshire, although historically split between the Ainsty of York and the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Limestone has been quarried in the Tadcaster area for hundreds of years and used in many famous buildings, including a Roman Fort in York and York Minster.

The market in the town was initiated when Henry de Percy obtained a Charter from King Henry III in 1270, and was originally held at the junction of Kirkgate and Bridge Street - Market Place.

In 1642 the Battle of Tadcaster occurred in the area around the town bridge. This was of course a part of the English Civil War. The town bridge which today we call the Wharfe Bridge was built with the use of the local stone. Over the years the bridge has been redeveloped several times.

Welcome to my website all about a traditional market town called Tadcaster, which is located in England about a dozen miles North-East of Leeds, North Yorkshire. It’s a fairly small and peaceful town with about seven thousand residents, and having visited for holidays every year for five years, I have become fond enough of the place to create this site about it!

Local newspapers covering Tadcaster include The Press and The Wetherby News. The major regional newspaper in the area is the Yorkshire Post. The local BBC radio station is Radio York, and commercial stations include Minster FM and Capital Yorkshire.

Three breweries have survived to the present day, The Tower Brewery (Coors, formerly Bass), John Smith's and Samuel Smith's Old Brewery, which is the oldest brewery in Yorkshire and only remaining independent brewery in Tadcaster. A fourth brewery stood by the river on the site of the present central car park. Sam Smith's draft horses are a common sight on the streets of the town. The three breweries employ a large number of local people.[citation needed]

By the 11th century Tadcaster had gained in size and this is the time when Tadcaster castle was constructed. Around 100 years later the castle was deserted, and these days there are only minor signs left of its’ prior existence. The stone from the castle was actually used to build a bridge across the river in the 1200s.

The town contains many historical and architectural treasures such as the 12th century St Mary's Church with its beautiful East window;  the 13th century motte and ditch of the Norman Castle, the Ark, originally built in the late 15th century and now the Tadcaster Town Council Offices, and many buildings from the Georgian and other eras.

Following the public meeting on 11 January we agreed to contact North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service to ask how the bridge closure would impact their service delivery and response times, which was of concern to local residents.  You can view our enquiry and the response we received here [200kb].
