Otley

app

In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Introduction

This village is dominated by a large agricultural college. Otley Bottom has earthworks of a Norman castle and a stretch of Roman road. Bartholomew Gosnold of Otley Hall was a pre-eminent early 17th cent. explorer and settler on the east coast of America. Animal impersonator Percy Edwards was also a village resident.

A large post mill stood opposite the southern end of Chapel Road. It had ceased working by 1909 and was demolished during the Great War. The Mount is a Mediaeval Motte & Bailey castle. Many archaeological finds have been made in and around it.
