The Walkington Wold Burials, remnants of the Bronze Age, offer insights into ancient burial practices.

This marker, now a Scheduled Ancient Monument, stands as a testament to the area's medieval history.

Risby Folly, from across the pond. Risby, situated in the civil parish of Rowley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, holds historical significance as the location of a deserted village and a former stately home. Positioned approximately 3.5 miles southwest of Beverley and 1 mile west of the A164 road, Risby is characterised by an open, partially wooded parkland, which was once one of the largest deer parks in Yorkshire. This parkland has become a popular destination for local walkers, offering a picturesque setting. Within the area, Risby encompasses Risby Park, a farm, and the Folly Lake Cafe. The former stately home featured ornamental lakes with several fishponds, and since 1990, these have been utilized as coarse fishing locations. The lakes add a serene and recreational dimension to the landscape. Additionally, Risby boasts an octagonal brick folly, recognized with a Grade II designation, contributing to the architectural and historical richness of the site.
