|1346 - The Restoration of The Parish Church,
helped by John of Gaunt, Son of Edward II.
|Evidence of John of Gaunt, son of Edward II "Time Honoured Lancaster" is very frequent in these parts. He married Blanche, the daughter of the Duke of Lancaster, and was the ancestor of Kings Henry IV, V and VI. He killed the last wild wolf in England near to where the John O'Gaunt Inn is. Some of the windows in the old Parish Church had his quarterings and he is said to have restored the Castleford Parish Church of pre-1866.|
