Leavening is one of the southern most villages in the district of Ryedale and lies in North Yorkshire. To the south of the Vale of York there is a region of chalky rolling hills called the Yorkshire Wolds. It is on the northern foothills that Leavening lies some fifteen miles north-east from York. As with many small villages tucked away in valleys and on hills, they tend to get over looked. So as a remedy to this, I give you Leavening at the foot of the Wolds. I hope you find this small contribution entertaining and informative. Browse the Website for more information about Leavening.
