Lund (All Saints)

LUND (All Saints), a parish, in the union of Beverley, Bainton-Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill, E. riding of York, 7 miles (N. W. by N.) from Beverley; containing 419 inhabitants. The parish is on the road from Beverley to Malton, and comprises by measurement 2950 acres, of which about 2000 are pasture, and 60 woodland, and the remainder arable; the surface is rather flat and open, and the scenery embraces some agreeable prospects. There are quarries of chalkstone, which is burnt into lime, and used for building and agricultural purposes. A pleasure-fair is held in the village on the third Thursday in Lent. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the king's books at £6. 6. 0½.; net income, £188; patron, Charles Grimston, Esq.: the tithes were commuted at the inclosure, in 1795, for 146 acres of land to the vicar, and 185 to the impropriator. The church is a neat plain structure, consisting of a nave, chancel, and north aisle, with a south porch. There are places of worship for Primitive Methodists and Wesleyans.
