Pontefract Local History Quiz

PLAY OUR PONTEFRACT LOCAL HISTORY QUIZ

We are pleased to announce that we now have a small Pontefract Local History Quiz available to our online visitors. This is only the beginning of what should become an extensive database of questions and answers sourced from the many articles published on this website.  As and when time allows, the quiz database will gradually be expanded to offer an even greater selection of questions to test your knowledge of the local area and your powers of recollection from the many articles which appear on this site or which have been published in past issues of the Pontefract Digest Magazine.

To help you on your way, a number of questions have corresponding links to the page from where the questions were sourced and the links will open in a new window so you can search for the correct answers whilst playing, providing you have sufficient time remaining to do so.

There are currently only 35 questions available on our database but more will be added over the next few days. This will give you the chance to begin playing right away and to gradually build up your knowledge in readiness for additional questions being made available. It may prove a bit too easy too quickly with such a limited number of questions but it will get much more difficult over the coming weeks.

In due course we will allow you to enter your e-mail address so that at the end of the quiz you will receive a report of your attempt, but as the report also provides the correct answers, and with only a small number of questions available so far, it seems appropriate to omit that facility for the time being.

If you would like to help contribute to our database of questions by supplying some of your own or have any suggestions as to how we can improve our quiz then do let us know.  For now, just give it a try and let us know what you think.

If you also have an interest in the neighbouring town of Knottingley, we also have a Knottingley Local History Quiz available too, which now has in excess of 120 questions available and allows you to enter your e-mail address to see an example of the kind of report you could receive.
