The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Kiplingcotes

The hills gently roll and dip as the warren of narrow roads criss-cross the patchwork quilt landscape which is dotted with hedgerows and woodland.

Kiplingcotes was once a main station on the Beverley to Market Weighton line but since the railway closed many years ago it has become the home of "Grannies Attic" an popular rural furniture shop with displays on the platform of various articles from days gone by. There is also a quaint little tea room at that same location.

There are a number of houses and farms in the area which is famous for its Kiplingcotes Derby. This is a race run every year came hail or shine on the third Tuesday in March. It is believed to be the oldest horse race in the country and has run every year since 1519. The rough four mile course over rugged open country side starts and finishes at the famous winning post. There are none of the amenities of modern racecourses but a hardy crowd always turn out to watch this famous race and keeps the tradition alive.
