The Penda's Arms, Naburn Approach (Whinmoor) (2 comments)
Colour image2000. View of the brick built public house 'The Penda's Arms' situated in Naburn Approach, off Sherburn Road. The painted hanging pub sign depicts Penda, pagan King of Mecia, who was deated by the christian King Oswy in the Battle of Whinmoor, 655AD, and after whom the pub is named. There are some fascinating accounts of this battle and the history of the area available.
