Boroughbridge - North Yorkshire Market Towns
Home Market Towns (A-L) Market Towns (M-Z)
The picturesque town of Boroughbridge has existed since early Roman times, and throughout two millenia it has acted as a transport and coaching centre for both the Great North Road (now the A1 Trunk-road) and the River Ure, between which the town lies.

Although Boroughbridge is on the Great North Road the town centre is really just to the east of the road.  The Main Street (lined with many fine buildings from the coaching era) with its market square is at its south end and a charming cobbled area in front of Boroughbridge Hall is at the north end.

The town is steeped in history, including the neothlithic ‘Devils Arrows’ standing stones; the extensive Roman remains at nearby Aldborough; and the site of the 14th Century ‘Battle of Boroughbridge’, which saw the defeat of the rebel Earl of Lancaster.
