Snaith is a town in the East Riding of Yorkshire local government area of England. It is situated approximately 6 miles (9.7 km) west of Goole on the A1041 road at its junction with the A645 road. It lies a mile to the north of the M62 motorway and just south of the River Aire.

The town of Snaith, East Cowick and West Cowick form the civil parish of Snaith and Cowick. The Snaith and Cowick civil parish had 3,028 inhabitants and 1,228 households in the 2001 UK census.[1] The town continues to grow in size, due to the ever expanding Ben Bailey housing estate.

It is the focal point of the local rural area and home to the local schools (primary and secondary), both with very good reputations. Local amenities include: Co-op, paper shop, petrol station, fire station, post office, five pubs (The Bell And Crown, The Black Lion, Downe Arms, Plough Inn & The Brewers Arms), four hairdressers, chemist, doctors surgery and hardware store, and two florists. Most of which are situated on the Market Place. The town continues to adapt and modernize in the wake of the 21st century, in an attempt to meet the needs of an increasingly cosmopolitan population. The Market Place is host to a small delicatessen, called 'Kitchen', and a café named 'Bon Appétit', which both offer deli food, snacks, and luncheon. There are three takeaways in Snaith: Mario's, AAAA, and The Snaith Chippy, which has recently been extended into a diner.

The town exit/entry to the M62 is approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) away, giving access to Hull, Doncaster, Goole, Leeds and Castleford. The historic town of Selby is located 7 miles (11 km) from Snaith and you would travel via Carlton and Camblesforth on your way. Snaith is approximately 20.6 miles (33 km) from the historic city of York.

Snaith was part of the Goole Rural District in the West Riding of Yorkshire from 1894 to 1974, then in Boothferry district of Humberside until 1996.


Snaith railway station is situated on the line roughly half way between Hull and Leeds.It is served by a railway station on the Pontefract Line from Leeds to Goole.

The town also has a regular bus service, as it is central to the 400 and 401 Arriva bus services, which usually commute hourly between Selby and Goole.
