Read About This Virtual Tour

There are many untold stories behind every place and every person, and Leconfield has its own stories, in a way that only James can tell them!

A small Yorkshire village of no astounding beauty or touristic value. However, every place has a story to tell, and Leconfield is no different.

Take a journey that starts on the open fields that lead us to Leconfield Castle. A site with no remains except a moat built by a family who led a Game of Thrones style life of execution, treason and bravery.

Our journey then takes us on past the village ‘old school’ and past the ‘grange house,’ toward Leconfield Church. Churches have been at the heart of English village life for centuries. Here we will learn how the village played its part during World War Two and how a German aircraft very nearly crashed into the church.
