Belthorpe, Youlthorpe and Gowthorpe
In the East Riding of Yorkshire, springs of water issuing from the western escarpment of the Yorkshire Wolds form a beck that runs southwest onto the Vale of York and it is around this beck that the village of Bishop Wilton has grown up.
To the north of Bishop Wilton the main route from York to Bridlington climbs the Wolds to its highest point of 246 metres. It is just before this climb, at the bottom of Garrowby Hill, that a road runs south to Pocklington crossing the main street of the village and splitting it into two, a top or east end and a bottom or west end.
The wider Parish of Bishop Wilton stretches out to embrace the hamlets of Belthorpe, Youlthorpe and Gowthorpe.
