 About This website
Cawood is an historic village set in beautiful North Yorkshire. Still a crossing point for the River Ouse the village has evolved through ecclesiastical development with the summer palace for the Archbisops of York and through trade and industry, mainly agriculture.  Like many villages today most people will work away from their homes, the village has good roads to the major towns and cities, and Cawood has developed into a commuting community.

What to find on the website

This is a website for the village that has been created by the Parish Council. Several organisations and individuals within the village have their own sites and the PC felt that it should represent an overall picture of our community.

There are links and contacts for various groups and societies, a history of the village and items on village amenities.
(If you organise a group or society in the village and are not listed please contact the website using the Email link on the left).

A list of useful contacts, councils, police etc is also available along with a gallery of photographs of village life on the Useful Links page.

The site also lists a diary of events that take place in the village.

Thank you for visiting Cawood on the web, do come and see us in the real world.

 

 




Cawood Craft Festival is held over the August Bank Holiday each year.


The village has an open green space called the Castle Garth.


Cawood had a reputation for flooding but it now is protected by a flood defence wall that has recently been upgraded.


The village has seen an upsurge in allotment keeping and a farmer's field is rented for 40 allotments..


Cawood's swing bridge is its link to the road north and York. Years ago it was kept busy opening for commercial river traffic but now mainly pleasure craft pass through its portal.


Cawood now has a published a Vllage Design Statement to help planners and builders keep developments within the character of the village.
