Wombwell Arms
Wombwell Arms
The Wombwell dates from around 1620, when it was built as a granary, probably using stone from nearby Byland Abbey (SE5478 : Byland Abbey). The building first became became an ale house in about 1645.

Originally called The Stapylton Arms after the Stapylton family who owned the village of Wass, the name was changed to The Wombwell Arms in 1896 when the village was purchased by Sir George Wombwell of Newburgh Priory near Coxwold. (Sir George was a member of the same family that owned land near Barnsley in South Yorkshire on which the town of Wombwell is now built.)
