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.  

St Leonard's Church Roof Replacement Update

Surveyors have been looking at the work required to carry out the re-roofing and associated works at the church, which is being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It's good to report that no bats were found! All the reports are now complete and we are awaiting the final quotations and figures ready to submit to the HLF before the end of September 2015. 

All being well, actual work will start in the New Year, 2016.

Many thanks to our supporters who continue to help in many varied ways.
