The Romans had a riverside camp here, the Saxons and Vikings visited and in the Middle Ages it was famed for banquets and tournaments at the former castle, most notably the Great Feast to celebrate the enthronement of George Neville as Archbishop of York, one of the largest banquets ever recorded in England, employing 2,000 cooks ...'
