Yapham St Martin


The Parish

The Chapelry of Yapham is located in the western part of the East Riding of Yorkshire, Yapham is a chapelry within Pocklington parish and is located about 2 miles north of that large East Riding village. Yapham lies in lanes about 2 miles north of the A1079 road which connects York with Market Weighton. Yapham is a small and compact village mostly built along a narrow and winding lane (Mellonby Lane). The area is today intensively arable with large cereal fields predominating, at the time of this transcript it would have had a rather more mixed farming economy. A number of small becks drain Yapham westwards to join the River Derwent and thence the North Sea through the Humber Estuary. Yapham is sited at around 30 metres above the sea in gently sloping land with few extremes of height change in the immediate vicinity. Yapham chapelry was relatively small, it covered just over 1,000 acres and would have supported a population of just over 200 parishioners. In Domesday times Yapham was held directly by King William, himself, it was not specifically detailed as to its assets but being taxed at 10.8 geld units it was clearly more significant than it is today.

The Church

St Martin's church sits on the southern edge of Yapham set back behind properties and east of Mellonby Lane. The church is small as befits a small congregation with nave & chancel combined into a single space, there is a simple louvred bellcote rather than a tower. Most of the building dates from the late 1770s when it was almost completely rebuilt. It is thought the original building was here from Norman times but there are no certain traces of that origin in what remains. St Martin sits back a field from the road and is accessed by the driveway to a bungalow and up a short flight of steps, the rough oblong of the churchyard is open enough for adequate photography.
