The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Beswick

As the traffic passes along the busy A164 the little Village of Beswick sits quietly at its side watching it all go by. The pretty Church of St Margaret’s with its rounded end wall is peaceful but for the sounds of the farm animals in the surrounding fields. The houses are all neatly kept and add to the Village's quaint country feel.

Children from Beswick and the surrounding area have to make their way to Beswick and Watton C of E School which is situated about half a mile out of the village. The school built in 1858 looks like a large house from the front but over the years has had to be extended by adding portacabins in the rear yard to use as classrooms in order to accommodate all the children who now attend.
