Snaith

Details

Snaith was granted a market charter in 1223 by King Henry lll.When Kingston Upon hull was chosen by King Edward 1 as a port for the future in 1299, it signalled the start of increasing commercial traffic along The river Aire to the West Riding of Yorkshire.
Snaith built a harbour and encouraged the ships to stop and allow the crew some R&R in the many taverns in the town. It quickly became the capital of culture on the route between Hull and Leeds.

But, of course, it wasn’t to last as bigger and faster ships demanded better routes for their precious cargoes. However, those building blocks in the 13th century still serve Snaith well today.
It has a thriving commercial centre serving the surrounding villages and, just as those early visitors found 700 years ago, you will find a warm welcome in Snaith today.

There is a self-guided Heritage Trail around the town and in October 2017 there will be a week of Guided Heritage walks; From Sunday 22nd October until Sunday 29th October.
