Pontefract's name originates in the Latin Pontus Fractus, "Broken Bridge". The town is situated on an old Roman Road (now the A639), described as the "Roman Ridge", which passes south towards Doncaster. Although Pontefract itself does not appear in the Domesday book,an area of the town, known as Tanshelf, does.
Pontefract Castle dates from Norman times, when it was known as Pomfret. It was built, about 1070 by Ilbert de Lacy. King Richard II was murdered within the castle walls in 1400.
William Shakespeare’s play Richard III mentions this incident:
Pomfret, Pomfret! O thou bloody prison,
Fatal and ominous to noble peers!
Within the guilty closure of thy walls
Richard the second here was hack'd to death;
And, for more slander to thy dismal seat,
We give thee up our guiltless blood to drink.
Pontefract suffered throughout the English Civil War. The castle was noted by Oliver Cromwell as "[...] one of the strongest inland garrisons in the kingdom." However, three sieges by the Parliamentarians left the town impoverished and depopulated. After the end of the Third Siege (24th March 1649), Pontefract inhabitants, fearing a fourth, petitioned Parliament for the castle to be demolished. In their view, the castle was a magnet for trouble. On 5th April 1649, demolition began; although efforts were extensive, the crumbling sandstone ruins of the castle remain today and may be visited.

isn't demanding or dictating what your friends should say or do.
It is giving and gratefully accepting.
It can survive periods of little communication, cause there is love
and affection and many a shared thought and experience.
It does not deceive, it can't be bought.
It warms your heart and your soul.
Sometimes it causes others to
watch with envy,
because they don't know the concept of true
It cannot be destroyed by those tiny
