Local Information

Leisure Facilities

The town – affectionately referred to as Pock – has a skyline dominated by a 15th century church tower, with the architecture a mixture of quaint old houses and modern buildings – and 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.

Now considered a commuter town for York (which is just 13 miles away), Hull and Leeds – Pocklington not only boasts one of the area’s finest independent co-ed fee paying schools in the area (once attended by actor, writer and musician, Ade Edmonson), but offers an eclectic mix of recreational, social and arts interests.

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.

The wonderful Pocklington Canal Head has been named as one of the top 10 places to see watery wildlife in Britain, or there is the chance for a spot of fly-fishing at nearby Allerthorpe Lakeland Park - which comes complete with its own watersports facilities and BMX Park if angling isn’t your thing.

Pocklington is 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 interest, 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 life.
