Sayles
Five miles south-est of Pontefract, West Riding (493173)

Sayles at Wentbridge The name Sayles is retained by a plantation on the eastern side of the A1 (or Great North Road) fly-over adjoining the village of Wentbridge. It was once a small tenancy in the parish of Kirk Smeaton. In 1852, the site was identified, by Revd Joseph Hunter, as the Saylis, to where the Geste says Robin Hood sent Little John in order to get a good view over Watling Street, otherwise known as the Great North Road. Its value as a look-out post is evident even today.
