Welcome to the Thornton-le-Street village website. We, the residents of the village, are proud to live in such a beautiful rural location. We are a small yet tight-knit community and we love living here.

We have the Yorkshire Dales not far to the West and the Yorkshire Moors a few miles to the East. And of course our village itself has a rich and interesting history. 

We hope that you enjoy this website and find it useful. Please feel free to leave comments on any of the pages.  

Breaking News... Chocks Away!

We have now been informed that the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has released the funding for us to begin the first phase of our bid for a new church roof. The architect has been given instructions to begin work on the required surveys prior to procuring quotes and services for the actual work.

We will shortly be looking for photographers and record keepers so that we can produce a photographic record of the work as it progresses and don't forget to look out for details of further workshops as they occur. 

Many thanks for all the continued support. It looks like it will be a busy year in Thornton le Street!
