High Hunsley is a small hamlet in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated in the Yorkshire Wolds approximately 6 miles (10 km) south-west of Beverley town centre and 2 miles (3 km) north-west of the village of Little Weighton.
In 1823 Hunsley (then both High and Low), was in the civil parish of Rowley and the Wapentake of Harthill. Baines' History, Directory and Gazetteer of the County of York stated that Hunsley was formerly "a place of some consequence," where "the foundations of ancient buildings are sometimes dug up". Occupations at the time included two farmers, a corn factor (trader), a yeoman, and a gentlewoman.
To the west of the settlement is the 61-metre (200 ft) High Hunsley transmitter (BBC Radio Humberside, 96.9 Viking FM and Capital Yorkshire. The ground around the transmitter is at a height of around 160 metres (525 ft) above sea level.), which is used by local radio stations
