Castleford grew as a centre of industrial activity in the nineteenth century but its history goes a lot further back. Recently the skeleton of a bronze age lord together with the remains of his chariot were discovered in Castleford's Fryston woodland. The Roman fort of Lagentium, situated within what is now the town centre, has revealed so many important finds that there is now an active campaign to build a Heritage Centre within Castleford town centre. The name of Castleford is illustrated in the coat of arms by the gold castle and the ford of white and blue waves upon the shield. The white roses are to show that the town is in Yorkshire. The gold Roman eagle is there because the town stands on the site of a Roman fort. A miner's lamp is on the eagle. On each wing of the bird is the badge of the Lacey family, on whose former land Castleford is located.

In the late first century and until 180 AD a roman settlement called Lagentium or Legioleum was located where Castleford is today. It consisted of a vicus (civilian settlement) around a military fort. In those days travellers had to wait for the nearby river (River Aire) to become low enough for a ford to form in order to cross it. When the Romans left, the settlement continued until about 410 AD. The Britons of the area were of the Brigantes tribe.

The Anglo-Saxons occupied the area and called it Casterford (ford by the fort), which evolved into the village of Castleford. Important industries during and after the Industrial Revolution were pottery, coal mining, glass manufacture, chemicals and confectionary. These declined during the nineteen eighties. The potteries started in 1724 with the most famous, Dunderdale, starting in 1790. In 1836 a railway station was built in the town. The present one was built in 1871 for the Great North Eastern railway. Castleford Registered District was created in 1862 and abolished in 1868.
