For a definition of "wapentake", see the article entitled Hundred (county division) in Wikipedia.

Wapentakes, the Old Norse form of the Anglo-Saxon "hundred", are dealt with in Section 1.4, but Sections 1.1 (Hundred courts) and 1.2 (Administrative functions) deal with the concept and purposes of wapentakes along with those of "hundreds" used in English counties further south.

Dickering (#8 on map) was a wapentake of the historic East Riding of Yorkshire, England consisting of the northeast part of the county, including the towns of Bridlington and Filey; its territory is now partly in the modern East Riding (post-1996) and partly in North Yorkshire (post 1974).

Established in medieval times, it ceased to have much significance in the 19th century when the wapentakes were superseded by other administrative divisions for most local government purposes.
