Things to do: sightseeing
Stamford Bridge is a village and civil parish on the River Derwent in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, approximately 7mi east of York and 22mi west of Driffield. The village lies on the border with the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire.Location and historyThe village sits astride an ancient ford on the River Derwent.The Romans established a fort here about 70 AD, around which later developed a large linear civilian settlement focused on a bridge one mile (1.6 km) south of the present town. Iter I of the Antonine Itinerary lists "Derventio" as being seven Roman miles from Eboracum (York) which matches the distance from York. In relation to known discoveries under the town of Malton, antiquaries always assumed that Malton should be called Derventio. The remains at Stamford Bridge were not known to them, lying undiscovered under arable and pasture fields until quite recently.The Battle of Stamford Bridge on 25 September 1066 marked the end of the Viking era in Britain.The settlement was called Pons Belli by the Normans, meaning battle bridge. Rents of freeholders and cottagers were recorded in 1368 and there was a common oven recorded the same year.
