Ampleforth Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout North York Moors...

This is the location of the magnificent Ampleforth Abbey, which was built in the early 19th century and still has a community of more than 90 monks.

A private Catholic boys’ public school was also established here and is known as the ‘Catholic Eton’. Part of an 11th century manor house at nearby Gilling East is open to the public.
