Welcome to The Balk, a stunning range of new houses in Pocklington with something for everyone. Steeped in history, the market town of Pocklington is perfectly positioned at the foot of the stunning Yorkshire Wolds.

A historic market town

• The town is affectionately referred to as ‘Pock’ by local residents
• There is a mixture of architecture, quaint old houses and modern buildings, with many of the street names reflecting its history from the Iron Age onwards

Today, while the town retains many of its historical highlights, places of natural beauty and of course its association with the Wolds, it offers all the elements associated with a thriving town and busy community.

How can I get involved in Pocklington life, and where do I find out more?

• Visit the hugely popular Pocklington Arts Centre
• The Visit Pocklington website is the place for up to date information

Enjoy a night out with friends at the hugely popular Pocklington Arts Centre, which presents a regular packed programme of film, music, drama, dance, lectures, workshops and exhibition. For something a little different, and in a tribute to Munich’s traditional Oktoberfest, Pocklington also hosts its own annual ‘Pocktoberfest’, a great social event celebrating a range of ales and beers! For a gentler pace, why not visit Burnby Hall Gardens - home to Europe’s largest collection of hardy water lilies - or Millington Wood, designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

What will I find outside of Pocklington?

• Numerous leisure opportunities for all the family
• York and Hull are close by, with a vast array of attractions, shopping and leisure

Now considered a commuter town for York (which is just 13 miles away), Hull and Leeds. Hull is the 2017 City of Culture with a wide programme of cultural events and creativity to enjoy and participate in.

What else does Pocklington offer?

• One of the area’s finest independent co-ed fee paying schools in the area
• An eclectic mix of recreational, social and arts interests

The wonderful Pocklington Canal Head has been named as one of the top 10 places to see watery wildlife in Britain. There is also the chance of a spot of fly-fishing at nearby Allerthorpe Lakeland Park, which comes complete with its own water sports facilities and BMX park.

Those searching for new homes in Pocklington will find it’s a great place to meet people, whether during a shopping trip to the regular Tuesday market, or joining one of the many sporting clubs. Whatever your sporting interest, you’ll find it here, from golf and gliding to rugby and running.
All this and much more makes Pocklington a wonderful location for The Balk. Continuing to build on the Linden Homes’ enviable reputation, the development will offer a lifestyle to suit the pace of our residents’ busy working and family lives.
