About Eggborough

This is a typical Yorkshire village settled close to the meeting point of North and South Yorkshire. It is most noted for its huge 1950's coal-powered power station, one in a line of three, spaced about four miles from each other. The height of the stations dominate the region and can, in ideal weather conditions, be clearly seen from as far away as Todmorton in West Yorkshire.

The village is just a short distance from Pontefract, it is in an area renowned for its abundance of water, with the Aire and Calder Navigation, the Selby Canal, River Aire and River Went, all being within easy reach. Thus it is an excellent region for boating and fishing.

Mostly the housing of the village consists of traditional Yorkshire cottages, but new housing is enticing people who work in places such as Leeds, Wakefield, Selby and Doncaster.

There is an attractive racecourse at nearby Pontefract, also at Doncaster. Both Selby and Pontefract provide good shopping, and the region has a goodly share of pubs, inns and restaurants.
