Ousefleet is a small hamlet in the West Riding of Yorkshire approximately five miles east of Goole. It is located just south of the River Ouse (which forms the border with the Est Riding) and north of the A161 road between Goole and Scunthorpe.

It originates as a township of the ancient parish of Whitgift and since 1983 has formed part of the civil parish of 'Twin Rivers'.

Ousefleet has a village hall that was a former school of Victorian origin with some extensions added during the 20th century. The Hall Management Committee are raising funds to carry out improvements.

Ousefleet holds a village show, generally in August. The show was revived in 1965.

Ousefleet is listed by Ordnance Survey as being near to the grid square (on 1:50000 and 1:25000 maps) that has the least detail (a pylon line).[1][2]
