Tadcaster

Welcome to the Tadcaster Citizen, the new and improved Tadcaster community website. Whether you are looking for what’s on in Tadcaster, local business listings, market days, or general interest news, you will find it here.

Tadcaster, a town steeped in history which is surrounded by the amazing North Yorkshire countryside. Tadcaster is the last town on the river Wharfe before it merges with the river Ouse which is approximate 10 miles further downstream.

Our town is twinned with Saint Chély d’Apcher in France and has been since 1999.

Not only is Tadcaster home to three famous breweries but also the oldest brewery in Yorkshire – Samuel Smith’s which has been brewing fine ales since 1758. Samuel Smith’s is the only surviving independent brewery in the area and the oldest brewery in England.

Tadcaster was founded by the Romans, who named it Calcaria from the Latin word for lime, reflecting the importance of the area’s limestone geology as a natural resource for quarrying, an industry which continues today and has contributed to many notable buildings including York Minster. Calcaria was an important staging post on the road to Eboracum (York), which grew up at the river crossing.

Tadcaster Carnival 2014 was another resounding success, if you’d like to view some of the photos of the day please feel free to click here

The photo below was taken by Paul Hoaksey on carnival day and I think it is one of the best photos of the day and really shows the family spirit on carnival days…
