Ackworth Hoard

In 2011 The Ackworth Hoard was found buried in a garden in Ackworth inside a pot  made locally in Wrenthorpe.
It dates from the Civil War and was probably buried between 1645 and 1646, around the same time as the second siege of Pontefract Castle.

Help keep this important local find in the district by supporting a campaign to raise funds to buy The Ackworth Hoard for public display in Pontefract Museum.

Every donation however big or small will help save The Ackworth Hoard for Yorkshire.
