Skeffling is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, in an area known as Holderness. It is situated approximately 5 miles (8 km) south of the town of Withernsea and 4 miles (6.4 km) south-east of the village of Patrington on the B1445 road from Patrington to Easington.
The Greenwich Prime Zero meridian line passes through the village.
Among developments in Skefling has been the installation, by Eagle Power, of a 6 kW wind turbine on a free standing 15-metre (49 ft) mast. This was made possible with help from the BERR's Low Carbon Buildings Program, Langeled's Rural Communities Development Fund, DEFRA, Yorkshire Forward, Humber & Wolds Rural Community Council and with vital help and guidance from Karen Wood, the rural communities' officer from East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
The turbine was installed on 20 February 2007 and powers Skeffling Village Hall, with any excess is sold to the National Grid; the proceeds are used to help maintain and eventually replace the turbine. The decision to use renewable energy was made with long term sustainability in mind.
