Further Information
Features of Interest
Rise is a typical estate village, one of many in the East Riding which were built to house estate workers.  It still has a laid-back air about it, and is worth a detour to sense the tranquility.   
The present Rise Hall was built for the family in 1815-20.  It is a dignified building, but unfortunately cannot be seen from the road.  To the west of the Hall is the site of an older grand house, Black Hall, which was the seat of the Faulconberg family who held the Manor of Rise for over 400 years.  The remaining earthworks can be clearly seen in the field. 
All Saint's Church, Rise - we should appreciate receiving information relating to the church.  Please let us know via the 'forum' page of this website if you have anything at all, even just a short paragraph will be helpful.
