Lost Dog (Now Found)

Hello, Saturday whilst staying at Foston with a friend my dog escaped from the house through the catflap. She was last seen at 6pm 14/06 crossing the A1 heading across the fields towards Allington. The dog’s name is Maggie, she is a brown Cockapoo, cocker spaniel size. We live in Huddersfield so she is miles away from home. I can be contacted on 07855776303.


After a tremendous response form the local community Maggie was reunited with her owners on Wednesday. They would like to thanks everyone who offered support and describe the local community as unbelievable.

Allington Hall C1900

These photos have been sent in by Anne Varley from Somerset. They are believed to show Allington Hall around 1900. They feature some of Anne’s relatives. Ann Jackson is now investigating. In the meantime if anyone can shed any light on them please let us know.

The pictures can be seen in higher resolution on The Allington Flickr account.


If you are fed up with potholes, litter and other issues that your local council should be attending to its a good idea to report it. However, it’s not always easy to know who is the responsible authority . Not everyone realises that the County Council looks after roads, the District Council manages litter and that sometimes they do things for each other. That’s where FixMyStreet can help.

If you follow the link above you will be taken to the FixMyStreet website where you can report issues like potholes, graffiti, and fly tipping. If you want to know  what is being reported locally look down the right hand side of our home page. You will see the latest issues within a 10 km radius of Allington.
