Burton Fleming is a picturesque Wolds village, mainly involved in agriculture. The village has a strong sense of community and has retained many useful facilities that other villages have sadly lost. There is a church, pub/restaurant, children's playground and a village hall. The village can even boast 2 duck ponds.
Located at the village crossroads, the Burton Arms serves lunches and dinners. Some live music and other events and activities most weeks. See board outside or website for details.
St Cuthbert's church has something from just about every architectural period imaginable, Norman, medieval, Georgian, or Victorian , all piled on top of each other in glorious eclectic style.
There is a lovely village walk that runs along a grass path and track through West Field House Farm. During the spring and summer you will see many different wild flowers and grasses in the verges of the fields. Hares, sky larks are common sights (and sounds). If you are lucky you may catch sight of deer or an owl cruising the hedges for food at dusk. The path crosses the path of the Gypsey race at several points. Full details of the walk and a map are provided in the Stratton House information folder for guests.
The Gypsey Race is a chalk stream that runs through the villages of West Lutton, East Lutton, Helperthorpe, Weaverthorpe, Butterwick, Foxholes, Wold Newton, Burton Fleming, Rudston and Boynton. The stream flows into the North Sea in Bridlington harbour. The Gypsey race rises in the Great Wold Valley through a series of springs, and flows intermittently. According to folklore, when the Gypsey race is flowing, bad fortune is at hand. It flowed in the year before the great plague of 1664, the restoration of Charles II, and the landing of William of Orange.
