The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Middleton on the Wolds

The A614 dips and rises as it passes through the main street of this pretty Wolds village. Rows of cottages line the roadside along with some bigger houses, both old and new, and farm buildings. A mini roundabout was constructed recently in the centre of the Village to help cope with the large volume of coastal traffic which passes through. It is situated in front of the pond and small grassed area.

The Village has grown as the years have passed with a new housing estate being built and popular companies such as Soanes' and The Driffield Landrover Centre upgrading their premises. Along with these businesses there is a Village shop, two public houses, The Robin Hood and The Rose and Crown and The Parklands Residential Home, which is situated on the outskirts of the Village.

St Andrew’s Church sits in a commanding position on a rise in the centre of the Village presiding over its parishioners. Although heavy restoration work was completed in 1874, the original masonry and early 13th Century chancel survived. The churchyard contains four medieval tombstones. The churchyard used for burials today is situated on the outskirts of the village. So too is the Village Primary School, which is situated up the Hill on Station Road.
