Tours > Robin Hood's Yorkshire > Wentbridge

Wentbridge
Five miles south-est of Pontefract, West Riding (488173)

Wentbridge Wentbridge was merely another village along the Great North Road until the construction of an important bridge at Ferrybridge, in the 13th century. This caused a realignment of the road straight through the village and it then became a major stopping place, popular with travellers.

In one of the earliest Robin Hood ballads, the tale of Robin Hood & the Potter, it was here that Little John met up with the eponym of the story. Its identity helps to place Robin's activities firmly in the woods of surrounding Barnsdale.
