Pontefract is a market town in the West Riding of Yorkshire, with a population of 28,250 people. The town is well-known for its castle, confectionary industry, coal mining and horse racing. Nowadays, employment largely comes from the nearby Ferrybridge power station, its two remaining confectionary factories and service industries. Today, there are only two sweet manufacturers in Pontefract, Haribo and Monkhill Confectionary, owned by Cadbury’s. Meanwhile, the Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) has brought increased confidence to the town centre, with businesses now recognising that Pontefract has a wealth of potential. This is helping the town to attract new businesses that want to be part of the growing independent retail sector.
