Lissett is a village in the Holderness area of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated 6 miles (10 km) south of Bridlington town centre and 13 miles (21 km) north-east of Beverley town centre on the A165 road that connects the two towns.
Together with Ulrome it forms the civil parish of Lissett and Ulrome.
In 1823 Lissett, with a population of 95, was in the parish of Beeford, and the Wapentake and Liberty of Holderness. A chapel of ease existed in the village.In 1942 an RAF station, RAF Lissett, was built there. Its main role was to serve as a bomber airfield for the Halifax Bomber 158 Squadron. It had a short life - the final mission left the airbase on 25 April 1945. The airfield is now part of a small industrial estate in the village. In December 2008 a 30 MW wind farm housing twelve turbines each 125 metres (410 ft) high was constructed across the western end of the airfield.The village church, St James, is a Grade II listed building and houses the oldest dated bell in England, dated 1254. Perhaps of 14th-century origin, it was rebuilt by Hugh Roumieu Gough in 1876. Remaining from the previous church are fragments of a Norman capital in the east wall. The east stained glass window is by Charles Eamer Kempe, with Morris-style diamond-shaped flower details and lettering.
