LocationEdit

The village is near the A64 road and 6 miles (9.7 km) east of Malton. Two long-distance footpaths, the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail and the Centenary Way, pass through. The Anglican parish church has its own page.

DiaristEdit

The deserted hamlet of Linton, to the south-east, was the probable birthplace of Lady Margaret Hoby, author of the earliest extant diary of a woman in English.[2]
