The town population had increased at the 2011 census to 14,731.Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, much of the wealth of the town was facilitated via Selby's position upon the banks of the River Ouse. In the past, Selby had a large shipbuilding industry and was an important port, for the most part due to the Selby Canal which brought trade from the city of Leeds. Selby is home to Selby Town F.C. who play in the Northern Counties East Football League.HistoryThe town’s origins date from the establishment of a Viking settlement on the banks of the River Ouse.
