The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Thwing


Off the B1253 can be found the tiny hamlet if Thwing who’s name is derived from the Scandinavian language meaning "strip of high land". The area is mainly agriculture and the richly coloured view of the surrounding area gives this Village a tranquil air about it.

There is a Post Office and a Public House named The Rampant Horse, but the village is made up of private dwellings and farm buildings and with names like Pear Tree Farm and Herb Cottage there is a certain character about all the homes.

The All Saint’s Church is a 12th Century building retaining many of its original Norman features. The communal silver plate was presented to the church in 1689 by Thomas Lamplugh who was born in nearby Octon. He became Archbishop of York in 1688 and his name lives on in the area in the title of Lamplugh House which is situated nearby. It was opened in 1973 as a Christian Conference Centre for young people and attracts both clergy and laymen from home and abroad.
