Thornton-le-Dale Town Information

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

Just two miles from busy Pickering, this quaint village offers visitors a pleasant rural experience – though it can be a little crowded at times. Byways lead to glorious countryside views and the small Church of St Hilda at nearby Ellerburn dates back to the days of the Saxons. The local churchyard is the last resting place of The Black Knight of the North, Sir Richard Chomley, who served Elizabeth I.
