The village of Aldborough is built on the site of a Roman town (Isurium Brigantes ). There are roman remains, open for visits at weekends. Aldborough was mentioned in Doomsday Book.----The Battle of Borobridge 1322 AD is commemorated by a cross...... St. Andrews Church dates from the 14th century. It was St. Georges Day the day of my visit, so the church tower had the flag of St. George ( The English Flag ) on the mast. A Maypole was erected on the village green in 1964., The crown on top was made from a 1914 war shell.--------The village pub is The Ship Inn in Low Road and does lovely meals. The population of the village around 500.--------The roads around are narrow and winding. The bus from York runs 6 or 7 times a day, it also goes round to Borobridge Ripon and Knaresborough. The river Ure flows near the village.-- The old Great North Road (A1) used to cross the river here, today the A1 crosses the river at Borobridge.
