The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

By Karen Thompson

Weaverthorpe

Weaverthorpe sits in the bottom of the Gypsey Race Valley which flows gently alongside the main street. The tiny Village sits along side a quiet country unclassified road between the B1253 and the B1249. Although the Village is tiny there are two public houses, The Blue Bell Country Hotel and Public House and The Star Country Inn and Restaurant. There is a Post Office and The Wolds Stores which provide for the small number of houses and residents that there are.

St Andrew’s Church sits up on the hillside looking down on the Village below. It is a stone built building with a Norman Tower and a very unusual round staircase which protrudes on the exterior of the tower. Over the south doorway is a sun dial placed there in memory of Herbert of Winchester who built the Church in the 12th Century.Outside the Church is a memorial seat.

The Weaverthorpe C of E school also sits on the hillside presiding over the Village below.

Message Recieved From : Lee and Les
Subject : Congratulations on your website

Now that we have found your website we would like to take this opportunity of saying hello to any of our friends and neighbours who may read it.

We miss Weaverthorpe and Cobblers Cottage very much. Lesley-Anne and our grandchildren live here now but we miss Philip who lives in Scarborough. He's to be married next year. If anyone remembers us please use the email and keep us up to date with village life.

We have four of our five dogs still alive. Bonnie is 15 now and still as daft as a brush. We have all found work, Les as a mechanic, Lesley-Anne as a restaurant supervisor and me as a Library Assistant/Learning Resource Assistant in an academic library. So far so good!

How are Carol and Tony Woodall, Nellie and Walter, the Dobsons and Albert King keeping?

If anyone reads this email please pass on our best wishes to those who remember the Cooks of Cobblers Cottage. We look forward to hearing some news.
