FANCY A HALF HOUR STROLL ROUND ANLABY?
(please note a short part of the walk is through woodland so strong footwear is recommended).
Starting from the Red Lion Pub in the centre of Anlaby village, walk southward onto Lowfield Road. After a few yards turn right at the ”Barber” shop onto Ringrose Lane. At the bottom of the lane turn left into a short snicket. At the end of the snicket turn right onto Beech Lawn. At the end of Beech Lawn turn right into Voases Lane, after a short time Voases Lane swings sharp right but you will turn into an unnamed walled snicket which is a public right of way, which leads into the Anlaby House Estate. On emerging from the snicket, walk forwards towards a magnificent cedar tree passing the imposing front of Anlaby House on your left. Immediately after you pass Anlaby House, turn sharp left into Anlaby House grounds which is a public green space left in trust to the people of Anlaby. Having passed through the metal gates, veer right and keep veering right until after about 100 yards you eventually emerge onto Beverley Road. Turn right and proceed until you meet the junction with Wilson Street (note the odd road sign at the junction with Tranby Lane as you pass by). Turn right into Wilson Street passing St. Peter’s Church back to your starting point.
N.B. Voases and Ringrose Lanes and Wilson Street are all named after prominent old Anlaby families. The war memorial in the grounds of St. Peter’s Church is interesting in that there are more names on it from the 2nd World War than the 1st World War which is not usually the case. I presume it reflects the growth of the population in the local area between the wars. Maybe you can count them if you have the time.
If you want to know about the history of Anlaby which dates back to the 9th Century Danish Settlement of (ANLAF), research Anlaby: The History of an East Yorkshire Village 867-1999, by the late Renton Heathcote.

TOP TEN TIPS FOR SECURING YOUR HOME
Do not leave your keys or ID documents within easy reach of doors, letterboxes, windows.
Close and lock all doors and windows. If you have multilocking door handles, lift the handle, lock with key and remove it.
LIFT - LOCK - REMOVE! Put the key in a safe place out of sight in case of fire.
Lock garages and sheds so garden tools and ladders cannot be used to break into your home.
Keep side gates locked and bins stored behind them.
Use timer switches linked to lights and a radio so it appears that someone is at home
Invest in a safe for valuables and sentimental items and securely fix it to a solid surface
Install a visible intruder alarm system. Burglars don't want to be seen or heard.
Install low level "dusk to dawn" lighting to increase visibility and deter burglars
Keep side and rear boundaries high to restrict access and front boundaries low to remove hiding places
Photograph and mark valuables with your post code and house number then register items with serial numbers at immobilise.com
You can register your property on the secure property register immobilise.com. It is easy to do and recommended by the Police
