Our parish consists of the three communities of Thorngumbald, Camerton and Ryehill in the East Riding of Yorkshire, approximately 8 miles east of the City of Hull on the A1033 road which leads to Withernsea. Thorngumbald is the largest of the three communities with approx. 3,000 residents, leading through to Camerton. Ryehill is situated off the A1033
We now have just two public houses in our Parish since the recent closure of the Royal Mail. These are 'The Camerton' and the 'Crooked Billet' in Ryehill, probably one of the oldest inns in the area dating back to the 17th century. We have two places of worship, St Mary's Church and a Methodist Chapel. Also within the village of Thorngumbald is a shopping centre, in Church Lane, off the main road through the village.
Thorngumbald Village Hall is a popular venue for regular events including Yoga, Weight-watchers, Zumba, and many more and is also the home of Thorngumbald PreSchool. We also have a second venue in Ryehill Village Hall, including Table Tennis and Indoor Bowls . All these activities and others can be found on the Village Halls page, under Parish Information. The Trustees of Ryehill Village Hall are currently fund-raising to try to renovate the hall to its former glory.
