Wold Newton All Saints


The Parish

The parish of Wold Newton lies in southeastern Yorkshire, towards the northeast of the East Riding. As its name suggests Wold Newton sits on the chalk ridge of the Yorkshire Wolds about 6 miles southwest of the seaside resort of Filey. Wold Newton is a small and relatively compact village lying, in lanes, around 2 miles east of the B1249 which connects Driffield with the A64 and onwards to Scarborough. Wold Newton at the time of this transcript, and indeed still today, was a small farming community, today there are more arable fields whereas in the past this would have been largely a pastoral area. Wold Newton sits in the shallow valley of the Gypsy Race which drains eastwards to reach the North Sea through the port of Bridlington. Wold Newton is sited at around 60 metres above the sea and local heights rise within a miles or two to over 150 metres on the chalk ridge of Prior Moor. Wold Newton parish was one of the smaller in this area, it covered around 2,000 acres and would have supported a population of just under 250 parishioners. In Domesday times Wold Newton was shared by the King with one Gilbert of Ghent, a relatively small place not fully detailed but showing around 6 ploughs.

The Church

All Saints' church sits in the gap between Wold Newton's two short northward running lanes which meet just north of the church. Pevsner calls the church "humble but of great interest", the source of much of that interest being the un-restored Norman southern doorway. Dated to the mid-12th century this feature and that of the chancel arch (often the oldest feature of a church) clearly indicate the church has been here for a long time indeed. There are windows indicating a significant reworking during the 14th or 15th centuries but much else dates from the 19th century. The chancel was rebuilt in 1850 and the northern aisle added seven years later resulting in today's building. Wicket gates grant access from both Front & Back Streets to a well-wooded site which crowds the building from both north and south resulting in a difficult subject to adequately photograph.
