Wapentakes of the East Riding of Yorkshire. Dickering is marked 8.

Dickering was a wapentake of the historic East Riding of Yorkshire, England consisting of the north-east part of the county, including the towns of Bridlington and Filey; its territory is now partly in the modern East Riding and partly in North Yorkshire. Established in medieval times, it ceased to have much significance in the 19th century when the wapentakes were superseded by other administrative divisions for most local government purposes.

Dickering consisted of the parishes of Argam, Bempton, Bessingby, Boynton, Bridlington, Burton Agnes, Burton Fleming, Carnaby, Flamborough, Folkton, Foston on the Wolds, Foxholes, Ganton, Garton on the Wolds, Hunmanby, Kilham, Langtoft, Lowthorpe, Muston, Nafferton, Reighton, Rudston, Ruston Parva, Thwing, Willerby and Wold Newton, and part of the parish of Filey.
