We are very proud of our special village, both for its historic connections and for the people who live here today.
To the east of the village is our 900 year old Parish church of St Helen and the Holy Cross. Right in the centre of the village you can find our thriving Post Office and two charming pubs; to the west our excellent Primary School and Methodist Chapel and to the south is our Village Hall and a busy industrial estate. Most noticeable of all are the ruins of Neville Castle built in the 14th century which tower over the village.
We are still a rural community with strong links to farming and horse racing. Our 1000 inhabitants, young and old, are active in a range of activities from sport and crafts to gardening and nature. We were the winners of the National Village of the Year Community Award in 2000 and most recently won the 2006 Community Life Award in Yorkshire. These awards recognise the friendly welcome you will find here.
So come on in, explore a little further and find out more about this fascinating village.
