What is Castleford Known For?

With a population of over 45,000, Castleford is a town that sits within the City of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire, one of three historic subdivisions in the area. A former mining town, Castleford is the second largest town in the district of Wakefield. To the north of the Castleford town centre sits the River Calder, which meets the River Aire and the Aire and Calder Navigation, the canalised section of the rivers.

Castleford is the site of a historical Roman settlement. The historical Municipal Borough of Castleford, a local government district in the area which ran from 1955 to 1974, holds the suburbs of Airedale, Cutsyke, Ferry Fryston, Fryston Village, Glasshoughton, Half Acres, Hightown, Lock Lane, Townville, Wheldale, and Whitwood.

Attractions in Castleford include the famous Snozone inside the Xscape leisure complex, which is Britain’s second largest real indoor snow slope, as well as the Castleford Bridge, spanning 130 metres across the River Aire. The bridge is the hub of a regeneration initiative in the town, winding in an S-shape across the water. So great is this bridge that it has even won many prestigious awards, such as the RIBA Award and the ACE Engineering Excellence Award, both in the year of 2009.

The town is also home to the rugby league Super League team, the Castleford Tigers, a professional club who have won one Super League Leaders Shield, and the Challenge Cup – a knockout rugby league cup competition – four times. The most recent of these was the 1986 Challenge Cup. The team was formed during 1926, with Castleford being one of the twelve founder members of Super League during 1996. Castleford is also famous for its various other sporting entertainment, with ventures in football, motorcycle sport, and greyhound racing.

Why Trust Taybar Security In Castleford?

We are an SIA (Security Industry Authority) approved contractor, meaning we hold a licence that officially permits us to work within security-related matters in the UK. The SIA are a statutory organisation responsible for regulating the UK’s security sector, and prior to their introduction during 2004, a body like this did not exist within the industry – local councils were having to individually licence security workers themselves, often skipping out crucial background and experience checks in the process.

Their work has allowed countless security professionals to raise the standards of the sector to the level it always should have been, providing proper protection to those who need it.
