About Coxwold

Coxwold is one of those villages that appear to have changed very little with the passing of the centuries. It is an enchanting place that has a 15th-century church and almshouses that were built in the latter half of the 17th-century. It's place in the history books is secured by the fact that it is here, it is said, at Newburgh Priory that Oliver Cromwell is buried. It is thought that his body was brought here by his daughter, following the restoration of King Charles II in the year 1660, the burial vault has never been opened. The Elizabethan Priory was the family home of Earl Fauconberg who married Cromwell's daughter, Mary.

Shandy Hall, was interestingly the home of Laurence Sterne, author of Tristram Shandy. Sterne was the village rector, he came here in 1760 and remained until he died. There are several other interesting buildings around the village; the Old Hall, once the old grammar school is now a charming private property and the glorious 17th-century Coalville Hall has beautiful mullioned windows and is crowned with a tall chimney.

Worthy of note; Shandy Hall is open to the public, so too is Newburgh Priory. The scenery all around is spectacular open moorland, it is an area of sparkling little streams and vast wooded regions that provide the visitor with an endless delight of flora and fauna.
