Just 6 miles west of Goole and 7.4 miles south of Selby, Snaith is a town with great transport links. Sitting north of the M62, you can easily get Casteford, Doncaster, Leeds, Hull and York. There is a train station here with connection through Yorkshire and a regular bus service.
Deriving from the Old Scandinavian for 'piece of land cut off', Snaith was recorded as Esneid in the Domesday Book. The town got a market charter in 1223 which meant it could hold a weekly market and there were just 187 householders in 1379. Today, that figure is in the thousands and it has been part of Yorkshire since leaving Humberside in 1996.
