Given its name by the Vikings between 800 and 900 AD, it was originally called Wykestow and in 1216 Archbishop Gray of York began to give money to the area. This is likely to be when the All Saints' Church was built but there are no clear records. Today it is mainly used as a dormitory village for Selby and city professionals.
