This moorland village which looks out onto Ampleforth Valley has ancient origins and archaeologists have uncovered earthworks showing there were settlements here early in the Bronze Age.

The beautiful parish church of St Oswald - from which the village derives its name - was dedicated to the Anglo Saxon king of Northumbria, a Christian convert who died in 642 while fighting pagan King Penda of Mercia.
