HERITAGE

Follow in the footsteps of the past

Yorkshire oozes history. Clifton Park Museum captures why our place has been of historical importance since the Romans. Did you know the Walker Cannon that helped to win the battle of Waterloo was made here?

We have impressive majestic properties, an 800 year old market town, and a wonderful stately home which has the longest façade of any country house in England – the incredible Wentworth Woodhouse, home to a past Prime Minister.  Get wrapped up and immersed in our amazing history…we have much to be proud of and explore!
