Heworth Without Parish
Heworth Without is a semi-rural area approximately one and a half miles North-east of York City Centre. It sits within City of York Council's Heworth without Ward (further information can be found at: https://www.york.gov.uk/heworthwithoutward

The Parish comprises of around 850 dwellings, primarily bungalows and semi detached properties, mostly built in the extensive post war development period up to the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. The Parish, which is relatively low lying apart from at the north-eastern end, extends northwards to Monk Stray with Bad Bargain Lane forming the parish boundary with Osbaldwick. The Western limits of the parish are around the inter war development (NE of Hemplands Lane and Woodlands Grove) and the East is bordered by Tang Hall Beck and associated farmland. Archaeological evidence suggests that there was once a Roman settlement in this area, with Stockton Lane perhaps being part of a Roman Road linking York with the market town of Malton.

Meetings of Heworth without Parish Council are held on the third Monday each month at the adjacent Heworth Without Community Centre on Stray Road. 

Big Spring Clean Event 2018

The Big Spring Clean 2018 was scheduled to take place on the weekend hit by The Beast from the East but, undeterred, members of the Parish Council assisted by a number of residents rescheduled the Big Spring Clean event 2018 for the weekend of 24th and 25th March 2018. A total of ten bags of litter were collected from the roads and hedgerows within the parish. Some of the volunteers are pictured below:

The area is well served by the “Coastliner” bus service which runs regularly throughout the day and early evening and provides a service to Leeds in the west, Whitby, Pickering, Scarborough and Filey (all via Malton) to the east. The number 11 bus service also provides a very useful link via Stockton Lane, Ashley Park and Burnholme areas into the city centre.
