When you settle down with a drink at the Goodmanham Arms, you'll find yourself surrounded with items from a bygone age.
From vintage motorcycles to lanterns and a school bell, there are countless reminders around the pub of the old days.
In the future, we are working to develop one of our outbuildings into a museum.
In the meantime, why not take a stroll round the village and discover many historic artefacts - including railway signs, old farm machinery and telephone boxes.
Goodmanham is one of the oldest religious sites in England. Once the centre of pagan worship in the North of England, it housed the pagan temple of Delgovine.
In the 1870's John Marius Wilson described Goodmanham as "a village and a parish in Pocklington district, E. R. Yorkshire. The village stands on an eminence at the SW verge of the Wolds, 1¾ mile NE of Market-Weighton r. station; is the Godmundingaham of Bede;
was the site of the chief pagan temple in Northumbria, destroyed by Coisi, the high priest of the pagan religion of York, on his conversion to Christianity in the time of King Edwin; and is surrounded by substructions in the soil, which indicate it to have been anciently a place of note. ...
"The parish comprises 2, 930 acres. Post town, Market-Weighton, under Brough. Real property, £3, 915. Pop., 294. Houses, 57. The property is divided among a few.
The living is a rectory in the diocese of York. Valne, £447.* Patron, Rev. J. Blow. The church is mainly Norman; is thought to have been built with materials from the ancient pagan temple; and is good. There is a Wesleyan chapel."
