If Wetwang was the wet field then Driffield was surely the dry field.
It was only fourteen years later that a Quaker called Robert Fowler set sail from Bridlington to America with eleven Quakers and with absolutely no experience of sailing.A Saxon monastery is said to have existed sometime during or after Aldred's reign.Wetwang , five miles west of Little Driffield is a rather intriguing place name. The second part of the name almost certainly means field as it derives from the Viking word vangr and early forms of the village name are Wetwangha, Wetwanghe, Wetwange and Wetwong.Some of the stones from the old priory were used in the construction of Bridlington's piers.One of the best known characters associated with Bridlington Priory was John of Bridlington, who was born at Thwing, a few miles to the north west in 1362.He was famed for working miracles and after his death in 1401 was made a saint by the Pope.
During the Civil War, Bridlington was used as a landing place by Queen Henrietta, Charles I's queen.
It was historically the home of the Grifith family and then the Boyntons.
In 1989 it passed to a member of the Cunliffe-Lister family but it is now owned by a preservation trust.
It was first built around 1200 but was much restored by Gilbert Scott. Little Driffield, with its village green, lies a mile to the west of Great Driffield.
It is reputedly the burial place of Aldred, King of Northumbria, who died near hear in 705 while fighting in battle against the Vikings.
Some place-name scholars argue that the place was actually a Viking name 'Vaettvangrr' meaning the field of summons for the trial of an action.
