Wapentakes of the East Riding of Yorkshire. Dickering is marked 8.

Dickering was a wapentake of the historic East Riding of Yorkshire, England consisting of the north-east part of the county, including the towns of Bridlington and Filey; its territory is now partly in the modern East Riding and partly in North Yorkshire.
