Situated some 6 miles from the east coast of England, Leven is a thriving village in the heart of East Yorkshire with about 1300+ homes.
Up until the opening of the A165 by-pass, the village suffered from heavy through traffic heading for the holiday resorts of the east coast, including Hornsea, Bridlington, Filey & Scarborough. Now the village is much quieter and much safer.
Leven has a steadily expanding community, and a good variety of businesses catering for the everyday needs of the community, including a post office, pharmacy and surgery, with numerous clubs and associations covering the many hobbies and sporting activities undertaken by residents and visitors alike.
There are many places of interest around the area, with stately homes such as Wassand Hall, Burton Constable Hall and Burton Agnes Hall not too far away, and places of historic interest such as Beverley Minster and Skidby Mill just on the doorstep, or explore 500 years of history within the walls of the Napoleonic fortress of Fort Paull only 18 miles away.
