The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

By Karen Thompson

Nafferton


Nafferton is situated at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds. It is a designated conservation area due to the varying number of properties and historical features in the village.

There are a number of 18th Century houses bearing date stones indicating when they were built, like Nab House built in 1778. Many properties have been restored but there are a large number of new properties that have been built.

The Mere is the focal point of the village. It was once a mill pond which supplied water power to several water mills situated on its south east bank. The last mills and maltings were demolished in 1985 and the land redeveloped for building new houses.

The Smith’s Flour Mill still stands on Station Road having been built in 1878 it now stands empty and disused.

All Saint’s Church stands in a commanding position on a rise in the Village. It is a large Norman built church with a perpendicular tower, north aisle and clerestory. There are a number of curious medieval monuments inside.

The original Village school was built in 1845 and is now St Francis Preparatory School with the primary school now located near to the church.

The main railway line from Hull To Scarborough still runs through the Village and it has a number of facilities including a Post Office and newsagents, a supermarket, a fish and chip shop, a coal merchants and four public houses, The Star, The Kings Head, The Cross Keys and The Blue Bell.

The street names are all so characteristic with names like Priestgate, Coppergate and Nethergate and pavements are adorned with a variety of pots containing plants and flowers.
