Fimber

FIMBER, a chapelry, in the parish of Wetwang, union of Driffield, wapentake of Buckrose, E. riding of York, 8¾ miles (W. by N.) from Driffield; containing 170 inhabitants. It comprises by computation 1840 acres, mostly in a deep vale of the Wolds, whose picturesque acclivities rise abruptly from two large lakes. The village is small and scattered. The tithes were commuted for land, under an inclosure act, in 1803. The chapel, which stands on an eminence, is a small ancient edifice. There is a place of worship for Wesleyans.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
