Something of a showpiece
village, Hutton-le-Hole provides the rural
setting for the Ryedale Folk Museum, a
remarkable exhibition of rescued and
reconstructed period buildings including a
photographer’s studio, a cruck-framed house
and a row of shops.
Surrounded by moors, this picturesque location is blessed with pretty stone cottages, glistening streams and a series of intriguing bridges.
The oldest building here is Quaker Cottage, which dates from 1695 and is associated with John Richardson, a missionary to America who befriended William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania.
