The sign is on the A60 Worksop Road a couple of miles south of the village of Tickhill. I recommend that visitors park on Styrrup Lane, wear a high vis jacket and walk to the sign with caution as the A60 is a fast road.

West Riding Day This Saturday

We are pleased to hear that the West Riding flag will fly from Whitehall on Saturday 29 March for West Riding day.

West Riding Flag

We have provided the following statement to the DCLG:

“We are delighted that the West Riding flag flies from Whitehall on West Riding day in memory of the Battle of Towton. The West Riding is the industrial and commercial heartland of Yorkshire. The largest of the three Ridings, it connects the River Humber in the East to the Pennies in the West, where its’ boundary is only 7 miles from the Irish sea.”
