Things to do: museums, shopping
Grosmont is a village and civil parish situated in Eskdale in the North York Moors National Park, within the boundaries of the Scarborough district of the county of North Yorkshire, England.Grosmont Priory was established in the 12th century and closed during the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century. The village was established in the 1830s when the Whitby to Pickering Railway was built, and grew as a result of industrial iron ore extraction, and in the 1860s the development of an ironworks led to further growth. Up to at least the 1850s the village was known as Tunnel.HistoryThe River Esk at Grosmont, west of the priory was the crossing place of the ancient structure known as Wade's Causeway.A priory was established in the early 13th century, but no major settlements existed until the industrial revolution (1830s) when the arrival of railways and demand for iron led to the creation of a new village "Tunnel" later named Grosmont, and to the establishment of an iron works.Before the industrial period there is evidence of iron ore extraction and iron working in the parish: a 15th/16th century ironworking site has been identified on the banks of the Esk close to the priory; and a late or post-medieval iron forge existed in Smithy Holme Wood less than 0.3mi south-east of the present village; and a post-medieval pit for ironstone extraction was located less than 1 km east of the village; alum extraction and refining is known to have taken place near to the site of St. Matthews church.
