Appleton le Moors Town Information

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

This medieval village is unusual in having one of the few surviving commons. The street verges form part of it and sheep roam freely here. Christ Church is distinctively French-Gothic and was described by Sir John Betjeman as “a little gem among moorland churches”.

Appleton le Moors, Hutton le Hole, Spaunton, Lastingham and Rosedale are all part of the Manor of Spaunton, which has existed since the Norman Conquest.
