The downland spur on which the long High Street of this attractive country town is built drops abruptly to the gap cut through the surrounding hills by the River Ouse. Several monuments, such as the castle, bear witness to a glorious past. The 5 November commemorations with their torchlight processions, tar-barrel rolling, fireworks and giant bonfires are renowned in the region.
