Ale fans from London will be heading north to a Castleford pub this weekend.

The Junction, on Carlton Street, is hosting a beers in the wood festival from tomorrow until Sunday. The pub will have 20-plus beers aged in wine and whisky casks.

Landlord Neil Midgley said: “The wood mellows it and gives it another dimension.”

London members of The Society for the Preservation of Beers in the Wood will attend.
