Welcome to the Parish of Hemingbrough Historical Heritage Society

The Society was set up to raise awareness of the history and heritage of the ancient parish of Hemingbrough. The ancient parish includes the villages of Cliffe, Osgodby, Barlby, several hamlets in the area and the village of Hemingbrough itself. The aim of the society is to improve the environment of the village and surrounding areas by providing attractive community facilities and preserving our history and heritage. Take a look through our website to discover more about the history of the parish. We hope you enjoy this website.
