Wighill Parish Council

About Us

Wighill is a rural village and civil parish in the Harrogate District of North Yorkshire.  It is near the river Wharf, 6 miles east of the market town of Wetherby and 3 miles north of Tadcaster home to many breweries.  The village has one public house the White Swan and the Parish Church, All Saints, is a Grade I listed building and has one the best preserved Norman doorways in Yorkshire.

The village itself is a long ribbon development and is set in the heart of very productive farmland.

The first meeting of the Parish Council's 2017-18 Financial year,  will be held in The White Swan Wighill at 8.00 pm on Wednesday 17 May 2017, by kind permission of Ainsty Inns. Members of the public are welcome to join the meeting.

The Independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is carrying out an electoral review of Harrogate Borough Council and is proposing to draw new council ward boundaries across Harrogate. Only 40 councillors would be elected in future, which is 14 fewer than the current arrangements. Evidence is being sought to help decide the new pattern of wards for Harrogate. Details and maps of the proposals is available on line at www.lgbce.org.uk.
