History

Nearby earthworks named Pompocali are of uncertain origin, but possibly a result of granite quarrying. A minor Roman road lies alongside it, suggesting that Pompocali results from Roman activity.[1]

Bardsey was mentioned 1086 in the Domesday Book as "Berdesei" and "Bereleseie" in the hundred of Skyrack.[2] A motte-and-bailey castle dates back to the time immediately following the Norman conquest.[3] Bardsey also claims the oldest Anglo-Saxon tower church in England, with the tower of All Hallows church dating back to c. 850–950.[4]

The Bingley Arms are a public house that claims to be England's oldest public house, and to be recorded in the Domesday Book, although these claims are disputed.[5]
