Village Hall


The Village Hall Committee is pleased to announce that they are able to resume bookings from September 2020. We have made provision to ensure that government guidelines are complied with and we keep up to date with any changes to these guidelines. We receive ongoing advice from the East Riding Village Halls Network and ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England). All activities will be risk assessed by the committee so that visitors to the hall can be confident that arrangements have been made to secure their safety.

The Seaton Ross Witch

Seaton Ross has its very own witch! You can see Margaret Harper’s gravestone in the local churchyard dated June 1853 and bearing the now barely legible inscription:

The faults you have seen in me
Strive to avoid

Search your own hearts

And you’ll be well employed.

‘Peg’ Harper lived in an old thatched cottage behind the Wesleyian Chapel. The story goes that she was leaning on her garden gate when horses pulling a cart of grain stopped opposite and would move no further as a result of a spell she put on them.

Please refer to the website: for an interesting account of this tale, including detailed comment about the real person behind the story and the historical context.
