Welcome to Wigginton Parish Council
Wigginton lies 5 miles north of the centre of the historic city of York. The village has no obvious visual boundaries to the east and north and is defined by a system of drains that run along the edge of Wigginton Moor. To the south the furthest most point is bounded by the York ring road and the western boundary with Haxby runs down from Broad Oak Farm down to Moor Lane, Westfield Lane, Kirkcroft to Green Dike Lane and then to the ring road.
Wigginton has a Primary School, a Health Centre, a dental practice, 2 churches, 2 public houses and a village shop. Public facilities include a church hall, village recreation hall, the old school and the Wigginton Sports and playing field Association which offers the opportunity to play squash, tennis, bowls, pentane, football and triathlon. There is also a safe play area, Church Fields, for younger children and to the west of the village newly planted woodland, millennium wood.
The town sits on flat ground consisting mostly of clay with soil that is sand and alluvium. In the centre of the village is Westfield Beck. The nearby town of Haxby now merges with Wigginton though the old Parish Boundary map still shows the dividing line. This runs east to west along the back of the houses on Wheatfield Drive on its southern edge as far as Barley Drive. Here it turns northward cutting across Greenshaw Drive until it reaches the road known as The Village. The boundary follows this road until it turns west. The boundary at this point continues northward cutting across Windsor Drive near Ripley Grove and then out into the countryside.
