The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Wold Newton


The picturesque Village of Wold Newton lies deep within the beautiful country side of The Yorkshire Wolds and is built around the Village green and pond into which the Gypsey Race flows. The neat houses are all in keeping with the characteristic charm of the Village, many with tiny georgian windows and white painted wrought iron railings.

All Saints Church is hidden by sturdy mature trees such as sycamore, beech and chestnut,all which add to the beauty of the Village. Many of the features found inside the Church are Norman. Also hidden from view is Wold Newton Hall. The Weslyan Centenary Chapel was built in 1839.

The Village pub, The Anvil Arms, is built on the site which was once the Blacksmiths Shop and well over two hundred years on it retains its original structure and interesting features.

There is a brick column erected in the middle of a field on the outskirts of the Village which marks the spot where a meteorite crashed to earth on the 13th December 1775 at 3pm. The pieces of which are held at the Natural History Museum in London.
