Welcome to Heworth Without Parish Council

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) and at the bottom of our home page.  Look for Find out where you live.

The Parish consists 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.
