The Extent of the
The parish covers a large area,
which has a variety of land uses. It extends northwards for about
three miles from the Humber to include Wauldby, to the east it
reaches to the outskirts of North Ferriby at Long Plantation:
the eastern boundary extends northwards over Melton Hill where
it adjoins Swanland.
To the west, Welton is bounded by the
Parish of Elloughton-cum-Brough: from the junction of Kidd Lane
with the Beverley Road, the boundary skirts around the village
and crosses the A63(T) close to the footbridge and runs parallel
to Common Lane before swinging somewhat to the west before it
crosses the railway line and the airfield.
To the south, the parish extends approximately
two thirds of the way across the river towards Lincolnshire.
