Information

At the start of the 1st World War the Cattle Market had spread behind the Angel to where the appartment block stands today at the end of Horsefair. Wetherby was much smaller then without any housing estates. It was, however, an ideal centre for the local farming community having a number of converging roads. Animals arrived on foot, even those which made part of their journey by rail had to walk the last stage from the Goods Station on York Road. Inns on Monday, Cattle Market day, had extended opening hours.
