Good morning from a quiet ,chilly sunny day. Rain problems have almost 
gone here in Hull, 18 miles South of Cranswick, a place I seem to pass 
through 2-3 times each year. It`s a pleasant village with cricket 
matches on the village green...played there a few times myself in my 
younger days. I found your site by accident looking for Consitts in the 
area in the 1800's..the signpost aroused indignation so I fired off the 
email. It was at 2a.m. in bed I realised the error of my ways! If you do 
visit Cranswick  please find the signpost and follow the sign to Watton 
5 miles....its a circular journey of 8 miles. or rather a D shape. Have 
a look at Driffield on line it will give you an idea of your roots.
Very  agricultural !!!!  Paul

      Hutton Cranswick
     

The two separate communities of Hutton and Cranswick are less definitive 
today than in years gone by as the Villages have evolved into almost one. 

The Church of St Peterís is situated at Hutton and has Norman fragment 
in the South doorway as well as early English arcades, a perpendicular 
tower and Victorian windows. There are six church bells in all which 
ring out loud and crystal clear. They attract campanologists from far 
and wide who come to "ring the changes".

The Old Vicarage next to the Church was built in 1874 and is a handsome 
brick building in the Gothic style which is now privately owned after 
a new vicarage was built in 1967 with in its grounds. 


The Old Mill still stands at Hutton, now without its sails, which 
indicate a once industrious and thriving community. Today "the mill" 
can be found in the form of Cranswick Mill, situated on the 
Cranswick Industrial Estate.

There are some beautiful houses and cottages found in Hutton both 
old and new, all in keeping with this pretty Yorkshire Village.

The focal point in Cranswick is the large and beautifully maintained 
Village Green. Although it is many years now since cricket has 
been played on the green, due to the development of new Sports 
facilities at both Megginson's Turnpike and Rotsea Lane.

The Green remains well cared for and the impressive horse chestnut 
trees stand presiding over the childrenís play area and the 
refurbished pond which attract many people to feed the ducks. 
The green expands for six and a half acres which is quiet an 
impressive size, believed to be the largest in East Yorkshire. 

Around the village can be found a number of quaint cottages and 
houses on unusual street names like Howl Lane, Bunkers Hill, Hobman 
Lane and Sheepman Lane to name a few. There is extensive new housing 
estates which have been built in both Hutton and Cranswick as the 
village is situated just off the busy A164 route and on the main 
Scarborough to Hull railway line making it an ideal base for 
commuters.

The Village has its own butchers shop, two supermarkets, post 
office and boasts three public houses, The Pack Horse, The 
White Horse Inn with its infamous Theatre Bar, and The Cross Keys.

The Hutton Cranswick County Primary School has been extended 
over the years to cater for the growing number of children 
attending out of the village as well as the surrounding area.

A War Memorial stands on the village green where Hobman Lane 
branches off the main street, and serves as a reminder of those 
villagers who lost their lives at war. 

The land surrounding the village is mainly used for agricultural 
purposes and much of the community is employed one way or 
another in the farming industry.

Cranswick's Industrial Estate provides employment for hundreds 
of people with an ever increasing number thriving businesses. 
The more established companies like Cranswick PLC, The Fishers 
Group, SCI Manufacturing and Farm Force Engineering to name 
but a few, continue to expand year after year.

Situated along the main A164 at the junction with Burn Butts Lane are 
the popular Manor Farm Shop and the Londesboro Garden Centre, which 
is now well established providing all the gardening requirements 
and offering tea room facilities too.
