Pocklington is a small town and civil parish located within the Yorkshire Wolds, in the historic East Riding of Yorkshire in the north of England. The town is situated approximately 13 miles (21 km) east of York and is commonly referred to by locals as simply ‘Pock’ or ‘the Pock’.
The wider parish of Pocklington also encompasses the small hamlet of Kilnwick Percy as well as a scattering of outlying farms and houses, and has a skyline which is dominated by the tower of the 15th Century All Saints church. It was the town’s strategic location which initially made it a logical choice for the location of a market and the same locational factors today have led to Pocklington becoming a commuter town for the settlements of York, Leeds and Hull.
Pocklington As A Commuter Town
According to the 2011 UK census, Pocklington parish had a population of 8,337 and a large majority of those residents who were of working age tended to commute to one of the three aforementioned areas for work. Those residents who were not commuters tended to work either within the cluster of town centre services, as part of the Pocklington Industrial Estate or the Pocklington Business Park. Wherever these residents work, what this level of population tells us about the town is that it is a significant urban centre. So it is for that reason that for solicitors Pocklington can be a common source of personal injury compensation claims.
