The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

FOXHOLES

The busy B1248 runs through the middle of the village which was once famous for its abattoir and more recently its mushroom factory. Sadly these have both closed and private homes stand on the sites where the businesses once stood. The main business in the village today is the agricultural and tractor business of Wilfred Scruton Ltd, Case IH main dealers which has been in the village now for many years.

The village stands around a very small area of grass situated on Ganton Road and is a mixture of houses, farms and farm buildings.

The church of St Mary’s with its rounded end and decoratively carved doorway stands quietly on Ganton Road leading out of the village. Its bell tower with its widows covered by wooden slats and its pretty stained glass window make it an attractive sight positioned on the hill side.

The rows of pretty cottages standing on the road side, house names like Dingle Cottage and streets called Smythy Lane, all help make Foxholes the quaint country village that it is.
