Open...The Uncleby Education Centre.

A new education centre has opened in a local village for school children to learn from the surrounding countryside.

Halifax Estates has renovated the former methodist chapel and schoolroom in Kirby Underdale, working closely with local farmers, East Riding Council and Natural England, which provided financial support under the Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) Scheme.

The Uncleby Education Centre offers a classroom, toilets and washing facilities and is surrounded by picturesque countryside.
