General Sir William Robertson, chief of the Imperial General Staff, 1916-18, unveiling a War Cross in the village

Dalderby once had an Anglican parish church dedicated to Saint Martin. It was demolished in 1742, possibly because of a decline in village population.[1]

Teapot Hall was an early 19th-century one-roomed cottage with a thatched roof. However it was long regarded as a medieval building, of considerable historical importance as a survival of an early timber-framed house. In 1945 it was burnt down accidentally during VJ Day celebrations, and nothing remains today. It was at this point that its true date was discovered.[2]

Manor Farmhouse is a Grade II listed building that dates from the 17th century. It has a thatched roof. Dado paneling inside the building reputedly was taken from the demolished St. Martin's Church.[3]

Supposedly the village sent the largest proportion of its men to fight in World War I of any village in the country. A "War Cross", or temporary stand-in for a permanent war memorial, was unveiled there by General Sir William Robertson, chief of the Imperial General Staff from 1916-18.
