Wetherby


Wetherby is situated on the River Wharfe, a market town in Yorkshire. It is situated near the city of Leeds. Wetherby is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 under the name of Wedrebi meaning bend of a river. The Wetherby bridge which spans the River Wharfe is a grade II listed structure.


Wetherby was an important staging post. It once housed up to forty coaching inns. Today the town benefits from a healthy tourist trade. In the summer months its streets are full of shoppers and tourists browsing the independent shops or relaxing in the cafes and tea rooms or sampling the culinary delights of the excellent Fish and Chip shops.
