Snaith developed around The Medieval Priory which was built by Selby Abbey in 1102

Snaith was granted a charter to hold a market in 1223 by  King Henry III. 

It was a very busy and important inland port until the 18th century when canals were built elsewhere.

It still continued to be an important regional centre  until the Victorian Age.

Today SNAITH is a dynamic hub  for the surrounding villages with a good mix of local shops.

It is an ideal location for rest and relaxation before and after walking.

 

This is the FREE  Station Car Park from where HERITAGE WALKS and many other walks begin. The bus stops for Bus Walks are located on the road side next to the car park.       CAR PARK   GEORGE STREET DN14 9HY  SE643223
