The Bauk



The footpath from High Street to Aldbrough Road is apparently know as the Bauk or Boke. Nobody is sure of the spelling since it was only ever called this name verbally. In general, a bauk is an unploughed edge of a field, and that makes sense here as that's probably what this footpath was before the more modern houses were built. It has been an important route, older members of the village who lived at North End would have used it to walk to school having previously walked through the grounds of Withernwick Hall and up Butcher's Lane.
