Don’t forget that Pontefract Civic Society’s Blue Plaque Guide, launched Spring 2011, is available from Pontefract Library, Pontefract Museum & Pontefract Castle priced just 40p.

This isn’t designed as one specific trail as it depends how much time you have to get around the Market Place Conservation Area, where most of the plaques can found, though there are a few which are outside of the immediate town centre. Plan your route, take your time, and if you don’t see all the plaques, do come back and make another visit.
