Further Information
Features of Interest
-  The church of St. John the Baptist stands squat and solid in its neat and tidy grounds.  Visit it in autumn to see the copper colours of the tree in the churchyard. 
 
-  The village of Wilberfoss lies beside the A1079 road, some 8 miles (13 kilometres) east of York.  It has grown considerably over the past 30 years but the centre still retains its charm.
