Driffield
Sometimes known as the Capital of the Wolds, Driffield is a market town in the north of Yorkshire's East Riding, famous for it annual agricultural show. All Saints church is a lovely late medieval building with a fine west tower. Moot Hill, at the north end of town, was a Roman settlement, later re-used as a Norman motte. The opening of the Driffield canal in the 18th c transformed Driffield from a village to a prosperous market town. The Elizabethan treasure house of Burton Agnes Hall is only 5 miles distant.
