Additional Information
From Nut Wood there is a fine view of Raywell, House. Standing in a country park of 35 acres,  the historic manor house was once home to the renowned 19th century politician Daniel Sykes, a close friend of William Wilberforce. 
 
Steeped in history, Raywell House was built in 1803 by local Member of Parliament for both Hull and Beverley, Daniel Sykes. Sykes commissioned Marmaduke Pycock of Wakefield to design the house, and ever since then this huge house has attracted the area's finest as its owners, from politicians to wealthy merchants and traders. 
 
Until recently it was the headquarters of a pig farming business, but is currently in the hands of developers who are re-inventing the house and grounds as luxury accommodation and log cabins.  (The tearoom premises is also a log cabin.)
