​Wentbridge is a small village in the City of Wakefield district of West Yorkshire, England. It lies around 3 miles (5 km) southeast of its nearest town of size, Pontefract, close to the A1 road. The village contains one of the largest viaducts in Europe, its significance sanctioned by the Museum of Modern Art. Wentbridge is one of a number of locations that have connections to the legend of Robin Hood. With Wentbridge being a small village, there is only a few main roads and a big A (A1) road that are near it. The few main roads are Wentbridge Ln, Wentedge Rd, and the B6474, making it somewhat accessible but not easily.
