Principal Inns, Angel, Greyhound, and Swan.

This is a neat well built village, situated on the Banks of the Aire, over which is a handsome stone bridge. The possession of this Pass occasioned a severe conflict between the armies of the houses of York and Lancaster. In the neighbourhood, human skeletons, ancient armour, and other relics of war, have frequently been found."
