Anlaby Common is a linear village in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is on the western border of the city of Kingston upon Hull on the B1231 road and is in effect a suburb of the city. Together with Anlaby it forms the civil parish of Anlaby with Anlaby Common.
Community activities take place at Anlaby Park Methodist Church and St Mark's Anglican parish church; these churches work closely together under the name "Common Ground". The village has a number of shops and takeaways.
Anlaby Common may be called such but many of the older residents may know it as its correct name of East Ella. Anlaby Common seems to have adopted the name through the fact that it sits adjacent to a very large area of common land and is only 1 mile from the ancient village of Anlaby.
