The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Bainton

Bainton lies at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds and has the busy B1248 running through the middle of the village. It is a pretty village with lots of trees and tidy gardens adding to its appearance. The houses are all neatly kept, and due to it being a non development area, there are few new houses but old properties have been renovated to there former glory adding character to the village.

St Andrew's church stands on a raised site and is locally known as the "Cathedral of the Wolds". It is believed to be the forth church to stand on the site and has a font from the Norman period. It also houses a remarkable Mauley monument which resembles the Percy tomb at Beverley Minster.

The Wolds Village Tea Room and Craft Workshops which sit on the roundabout just on the outskirts of the village are well worth a visit. They were once a former court house for Bainton and Beacon petty sessions area where offenders could be locked up awaiting trial. Years ago a beacon stood a few hundred yards from the roundabout on the Driffield road which could be seem for miles around. Recently an extremely high light has been erected in the middle of the roundabout and once again is visible for miles.
