The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Lissett


The busy A165 cuts through the middle of the Village and houses can be found scattered on both sides of the road. The main street is lined with houses and farm buildings all of which give it a rustic, rural feel.

During the Second World War Lissett was a home to the Royal Air Force '158' squadron.

All that is left of the airfield today is some of the runway which is rough and potted and some of the buildings which are now used as industrial units on the Lissett Industrial Estate which is a thriving area for local businesses.

The St James of Compostella Church lies quietly behind some trees. It was built in 1876 but some of the Norman work from its predecessor was used. It is said to contain the oldest dated bell in England which dates to 1254.
