Historical Description

Millington, a village and a parish in the E.R. Yorkshire. The village stands on the Wolds, near Ermine Street, 2½ miles NNE of Pocklington railway station.

A place about half a mile NE of the village contests, with Londesbrough and other places, the claim of having been the Delgovitia of the Romans, and it has yielded coins, "tiles, tessellated pavements, foundations of a circular temple, and other relics of Roman date. Vast earthworks from 60 to 90 feet high, enclosing an area of over 4000 acres, are in the neighbourhood. The living is a vicarage, united with the vicarage of Great Givendale, in the diocese of York; net value, £202 with residence. Patron, the Archbishop of York. The church is ancient but good, and has a small tower. There is a slightly endowed school.
