Rise is a village and civil parish in Holderness, the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 7 miles (11 km) east of the town of Beverley and 5 miles (8 km) south-west of Hornsea. It lies to the east of the B1243 road.

The place-name 'Rise' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as "Risun". This is the plural of the Old English word 'hris', meaning 'brushwood'.[2]


According to the 2011 UK census, Rise parish had a population of 105,[1] a reduction on the 2001 UK census figure of 119.[3]

Rise was served from 1864 to 1964 by Whitedale railway station on the Hull and Hornsea Railway, until the line was closed following the Beeching Report.[4]

Rise Hall[edit]

East of the village is Rise Hall, a Grade II* listed historic house built between 1815–20.[5][6] In 2010 its restoration by property developer Sarah Beeny was the subject of a TV series, Beeny's Restoration Nightmare on Channel Four.[7][8]
