The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Cottam

The deserted mediaeval village of Cottam can be found on a single track road out of Langtoft off the B1248. All that remains of the village is a small derelict church whos bell tower can be seen above the hollow in which it sits.

During the 2nd World War Cottam was used as an airfield and some of the concrete runways can still be seen. For many reasons the airfield never became operational and was later used as a bomb dump.

There are a number a farms scattered around the area and the views from the highest points on the airfield are quiet spectacular as from here the towers of the Humber Bridge can be seen as well as the North Sea
