Ferrybridge is a village in West Yorkshire, and is linked to various of other major towns and cities across the A1. For instance, Ferrybridge falls within the Knottingley ward of Wakefield City Council. The origin of the village’s name is from ‘Old Norse’ and means bridge by the ferry, and it appears in the Domesday book of 1086.

As we mentioned above, Ferrybridge is close to junctions of the M62 and A1(M) motorways, as well as rail networks including, York, Pontefract, and Rotherham. If you live in the village, you will have Wakefield and Leeds to the west, and Goole to the east – but from the south, you have Askern and Doncaster, the home of Paul Young Funeral Directors.

Travelling from these places, you’ll need a place to stop and rest. The M62 services located near the village offers rest bites from Burger King, M&S Food, Greggs, and WH Smiths. The service station is also dominated by the famous Power Station skyline, which can be seen around the entire village.
