The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Wansford


The area now is mainly agricultural but when the Driffield Canal was in its hay-day the now peaceful Village of Wansford was a thriving trading place as boats and barges came through on the route between Driffield and Hull. The Wansford Trout Farms also provide all year round fishing in well stocked waters!

Some of the original rows of cottages are still standing with a number of large detached properties having been built in recent years.

St Mary’s Church serves the Village and surrounding area and was built in 1868 by the Sykes family of Sledmere. The Vicarage was built in the 20th Century, also by the Sykes family, along with the former school and school house. The Old School is now a fabulous private dwelling named The Finishing Post.

The Village at one time boasted two public houses but today there remains just one called The Trout Inn and Restaurant.
