The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

By Karen Thompson

Lockington


The pretty village of Lockington lies on a lane which runs between the A164 and the B1248. A bridge passes over a small beck which runs through the middle of the Village.

Narrow, tree lined lanes lead off the Main Street on which the pretty cottages and houses are situated. One of these lanes is called Church Lane on which the Church of St Mary the Virgin is situated. The church is only small and built of weathered brick. There has been a church on this site since Anglo-Saxon times and much restoration work was done in 1893. Since them the Church has remained much the same apart from some modernisation work of lighting, heating etc.

The Village has an air of wealth about it and there are some superb private dwellings which would sound this out. Some of which are behind ornate walls, some behind hedges and some of the redeveloped properties have quaint courtyards.

The Rockingham Arms Public House was refurbished a few years ago and is building up quiet a reputation for good food. The Village school is a relatively modern building which stands on the perimeter of the Village serving a wide catchment area of other surrounding villages.

There are a number of farms and small holdings surrounding the village with cows, sheep and horses grazing in pasture land all adding to the tranquil feel of this lovely little Village.

Subject : Filming a story on the school

After reading a letter in the Yorkshire Post regarding the fire at the Lockington school and the speedy way that teaching was moved to the village hall. I thought it would be interesting to film a short news piece on it as part of my course. It will not be for general broadcast,

I would appreciate it if anyone available to help in the input of the story to contact me via email or call on 07901 833247.

Thank you for your time. Michael Hodgkinson, A Leeds Journalism Student
