Youle is a city and port in the southwest of East Riding of Yorkshire. It occupies an area near where the two rivers Eure and Don flow into the Ouz, 70 kilometers from its mouth. It got its name from the word goule, which means canal.

The town as a small village was founded in the Middle Ages. The first written record of it dates back to 1362. He was first known by the name of Galle. He is not mentioned in the Book of the Terrible Court.

In the first quarter of the 17th century, an engineer named Kornelius Wernemüden changed the course of the Don River, causing it to flow into the Ouz River. Before that, its waters were flowing into the River Trent. The change in the direction of the water artery led to the drying of the Chateau Chase and the further development of the ship. In the early 18th century, a system of canals and channels was built on the Er-Collier River.

The water line was subsequently used to transport coal. In the 1840s, when the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company was founded, the town was the eastern leg of its railroad network. Moreover, it became one of the ports the company used to call and discharge its ships.

Before the reorganization of local government, the city was part of the Western Railway of Yorkshire. Then, from 1974 to 1996, he served as the administrative director of the Hammershires. It subsequently became a unitary unit of the State of Isst-Rhoulding-Of-Yearsheld.

The city is crossed by the M62 highway, which connects Hoole with Hull and Leeds. About 6 kilometers from the city, the M62 is joined by another traffic line, the M18 highway, which begins in Schofield, goes through Rotheram and ends in Gules. It also crosses two railroads, the Sheffield to Hull Line and the Pontefract Line.

The old Aire and Calder Navigation Channel and River system, opened for navigation in 1704, is in operation. It provides a connection between the channel & lyceum — Lyceum and Gólom. The city port is considered to be the most inland port within the borders of England. Nearly 2 million million tons of cargo pass through it each year.

The two dewatering towers next to each other are called &cello and pepper. They owe this to their external appearance. In the historic trading center next to the ring tower, there is a clock tower. It is located on the site of the former market place, with an open sky.

In an inelegant style, St. Johns Church, built between 1843 and 1848, has been erected. Its high tower tower can be seen from all over the city. The Lowther Hotel was built in 1824. It was originally named Banks Arms in honor of Sir Edward Backes, the crony of the shipping company Aire and Calder Navigation.

The most popular shopping and entertainment center in South Central is located right next to the Boutherly Road pedestrian zone. In 2009, the theater and cinema opened, playing host to new films and premieres.
