Boroughbridge officially dates from the time of William the Conqueror. Although the site itself, is thought to have been occupied as far back as the bronze age, when the legendary millstone grit pillars known as "The Devil's Arrows" were placed in a row on the western edge of the present town; the last of which is taller than anything at Stonehenge!

The bridge, spanning the river Ure once formed an essential link between London and Edinburgh. There are also excellent facilities for pleasure boats, including an attractive marina.
