The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

YO25 9P

Atwick


The Village of Atwick is another example of a village with a rural feel and yet it is so near the coast it is seen as a seaside resort.

The Village circles around the green which is graced by benches and seasonal flowers in barrels which are a pure delight to see. At one side of the busy B1242, which passes straight through the middle of the village, is the Post Office and Village shop and on the other The Black Horse Public House. The outbuildings here are the original stables which would have been used in the early 1900’s as overnight stops when horses and carts were used for deliveries.

On the green in front of the Village Hall an ancient stone cross raised on three steps stands stately but, whose origin little is known about.

The Church of St Lawrence stands at the west end of the Village and is believed to be the third to stand on this site. It was rebuilt in 1876 using red brick and has a saddleback tower and tiled roof.

Along the narrow road leading to the cliff tops can be found Cliff Top Farm with its caravan park and also the Melford Caravan Park. The sea is now less than half a mile away from the village, this is due to coastal erosion over the years which has left the Village of Attenwick totally under the sea.
