The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Skerne


The little Village of Skerne sits quietly amongst the deep Yorkshire countryside watching the world go by. It is a small community with most of the original cottages having been restored to their former glory and many new properties that have been built with the traditional feel of the Village in mind.

The Church too has a deep rural setting being accessible either through a farm yard or via a country lane off the road to Wansford! St Leonard’s has many Norman features in its nave and chancel, which is when the majority of the church was built. However the entrance porch on the south side and the bell tower were probably added in the 15th Century. It has a decorated east window and a perpendicular tower.

All the shops that were once open in the village have now closed and the School, which was built in 1877, is now a private dwelling.
