The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Foston on the Wolds

This quiet village lies off the B1248 road and its one mile long main street is lined with stately looking properties many of which stand behind ornate walls and wrought iron fences. All the gardens and lawns are kept neat giving the village a very tidy and pretty appearance.
A disused water pump sits on the verge side as an ornate reminder of days gone by. The Plough Inn, which was formerly a bakery, can be found on the outskirts of the village serving beer, wines and good food.

St Andrews Church, which also serves Gembling and Brigham, dates back to the 13th Century and has a Norman Nave and chancel. Outside the church is a wall and seat in the memory of a young women who died aged 21 years of leukaemia. A sad but loving tribute to someone who died so young from her friends and family. The Church yard is in the shadow of the church on the opposite side of the road.

The ever popular Cruckley Animal Farm can be found on the outskirts of the village and is described as a working family farm where rare and modern animals can be seen and touched. There is a lake where various birds and ducks can be seen, a picnic area and a café.
