Perfectly positioned to enjoy the numerous benefits of a village with a strong sense of independence and identity, Swanland is also close enough to enjoy the facilities of many neighbouring towns and cities within East Yorkshire. And with a wealth of amenities and opportunities within the village itself, there is much more to Swanland than perhaps first meets the eye.
With its own website offering information about the village at the click of a button, residents are able to get involved with or find out about village life – ranging from the regular film nights at the village hall to the established gardening club and history group.
At the heart of Swanland is the village hall – which opened in 2005 as a registered charity – and which supports a vast range of clubs, courses and meetings for all ages and interests. The highly regarded Swanland Primary School fulfills the educational needs of the village, which also has its own library, playing field and pavilion, and two churches.
There are plenty of opportunities for local people to throw themselves into village life. A highlight in the local calendar is the annual Swanland Show, which takes place in September and gives local people the chance to show off their horticultural skills and domestic hobby talents.
Swanland is just a stone’s thrown from Hessle, which is also well served educationally by a number of primary and secondary schools, including Hessle High School. For lovers of the great outdoors and just two miles from Hessle, the very popular Humber Bridge Country Park is a 48-acre wood with open meadows and wildlife ponds – and THE place to take the children to let off steam or to simply enjoy the great outdoors. Experience its nature and wildlife trails and the many events held throughout the seasons.
Hessle is also the start of the The Yorkshire Wolds Way – one of the country’s most beautiful national trails. It runs 79 miles from Hessle to Filey around the Yorkshire Wolds and celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2007.
For something even more leisurely, Hessle Golf Club provides a superb course, offering hospitality days and social events.
However, the buzz of varied nightlife, restaurants, bars and extensive shopping options are close at hand, thanks to the village’s proximity to Beverley, Hull and Leeds.
