Aldbrough Street Map
Former Aldbrough Garage

The tour starts at the approach to ALDBROUGH. The White House (former garage) lies on the corner of the approach roads from Hull (pictured left) and Withernsea. On the road towards Withernsea stands the modern village sports hall, and further on towards the village of Grimston is the controversial site of the Gas caverns development.

George & Dragon

From the White House, turn left into HORNSEA ROAD, the main road through the village, (this road continues along the coast to Cowden, Mappleton & Hornsea). Standing in front of you is the George & Dragon public house, built in the late 17th Century possibly to replace an old coaching inn, remodeled in the 19th Century, and still a main focal point of the village. Turn right by the George & Dragon into HIGH STREET. The Wesleyan chapel on the right was built in 1888, but closed in the late 1950’s, and the present chapel further down the street was built.

Cross Street

Opposite the Elm Tree pub -turn left into CROSS STREET. (formerly called Poskett Lane) - No. 15 Cross Street (the Artists Rest) was once a Public house, No. 16 is a Grade 2 listed building built in the late 18th century. On the right hand corner of Cross Street stands the recently modernised Doctor’s surgery, and was once the ‘Holderness Public House’.

Village Green

The end of Cross street opens out to the VILLAGE GREEN, a small triangular area which would have been the focal point of the village in the Middle ages. Now there stands a memorial to those killed in both world wars, there is also an old water pump. Next to the doctors surgery is the busy Londis store and Post Office. This is a particularly good area to take in views of the church.
