The Yorkshire countryside just gets better as you head further and further into the Wolds. Situated a couple of miles north-east of Pocklington lies the village of Millington.
You might think that the stunning, vast landscapes surrounding this village look like they have stepped out from a painting – and that’s because they have. One of Yorkshire’s most famous painters, David Hockney, used the rolling hills of the Wolds as subjects for his paintings numerous times.
The Wolds are described as ‘David Hockney’s playground’ as stepping through them is essentially like stepping through works of art. Millington, in particular, is the subject for one of Hockney’s most memorable paintings: ‘A Larger Valley’. Although visitors often say that the real thing is much more impressive.
