Castleford forms part of the metropolitan borough of the City of Wakefield, in West Yorkshire. Despite this, Castleford is a sizeable town in its own right, with a population of more than 40,000 and a history stretching back to Roman times.
As was the case for a number of towns in this area, Castleford's growth really took off in the 19th century. A combination of railways, steam engines and booming demand meant that the coal mining industry multiplied in size many times over.
With the coal mining industry now almost defunct in the UK, modern Castleford is more heavily dependent on logistics, retail and service sector businesses. Although some light industry remains, major employers such as Kellingley Colliery and Ferrybridge Power Station have now closed.
