Welcome to Holme on Spalding Moor


The Village of Holme on Spalding Moor lies in the Vale of York – centrally between York and Hull, in the East Riding of Yorkshire near to the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. The Village is large compared to some but it still has the traditional values and community spirit associated with village life.

The village’s recent history includes its airfield, home to 76 Squadron during the Second World War. History going much further back then that was uncovered in the 1980′s when an Iron Age long boat was unearthed at Hasholme on the outskirts of the Village.

Since those times Holme on Spalding Moor has evolved from marshlands to a farming community; and from farming to a diverse spread of people who either work near by or commute to surrounding cities.

Farming is still a key industry in the Village and many farms have been passed from generation to generation – giving the village an air of continuity. Anyway we hope you enjoy our Village.
