The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Lund


Situated at the side of the B1248, Lund is a picturesque Village established around the Village green. There now stands on the green an old water pump and stone trough filled with flowers which forms a focal point on the green as well as being a permanent reminder of days gone by.

On the Green also stands the old market cross. The stone shaft would have been the centre of the trade market, which was held every Thursday in the village square many years ago. When erected the shaft had a stone ball fixed to the top of it which was lost to schoolboy vandals some time ago.

Sadly earlier this year on the 'Cockpit' part of the Green, the felling of the old trees took place however these have since been replaced with a single tree.

In years gone by Lund was self sufficient with its own grocers shop, tailors and shoe makers. Today the local landlord of The Wellington Inn does the only trade. Just down from the pub is a grade II listed building, a traditional red painted telephone kiosk! This is one of only five in the Beverley Borough. Also preserved is the village blacksmith's shop, which is now the bus shelter. The fire and chimney breast have been incorporated into the brick building as a reminder of trades man who once worked and lived in Lund.

The Manor House, built in the 18th Century, now occupies the site of the old Hall and there are a large number of palatial looking new properties being built in the village giving it an air of wealth. The original properties are quaint rows of cottages and detached cottages standing in traditional cottage gardens.

All Saint’s Church stands quietly at the side of the village green in the centre of the village. Parts of the church date back to the 14th Century although it was extensively restored in Victorian times.

It watches over its parishioners and over the small children who attend at the recently opened Macdonald’s Farm Nursery.
