Life in these small West Yorkshire villages is a world away from the neighbouring nearby towns and cities which are just a short drive away.
Undeterred by the close town of Castleford and the hustle and bustle of Leeds, the Parish retains a rural feel with a mix of residential properties, arable farming and open fields with animals grazing. Despite being close to the busy A1, the villages manage to keep a traditional, unchanging feel which makes them always popular with people looking for a quieter, more relaxed lifestyle.
At the heart of the Parish lies the churches with popular services held by the Priest in charge, Rev. Andy Robinson. The pages dedicated to each church give more information about their history.
