Rainton

4
Rainton is a village in the Harrogate borough of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated about 6 miles north of Boroughbridge, 5 miles north-east of Ripon and 5 miles south-west of Thirsk. The area has a village green and a maypole. There are approximately 120 houses in Rainton including six listed buildings- several period farm houses, a smithy and a dovecote. The local vernacular building style is sandstone and cobble construction with slate or pantile roof.Rainton was a largely agricultural village. However, since 2000, it has become a commuter village, largely due to its close proximity to the A1 road. This in turn has led to an increase in property prices which is evidenced by the large number of barn conversions and property renovations. Rainton continues to host Christmas parties for local children, lunches for retired people, and other social events including a gardening club.Rainton is the principal settlement in the civil parish of Rainton with Newby. Newby, historically known as Newby-on-Swale, is a deserted medieval village, now occupied by Baldersby Park (also known as Newby Park), the home of Queen Mary's School.FacilitiesThe local school is based at Baldersby St James.There are two freehold pubs in the village: The Lamb and The Bay Horse which are both traditional village pubs. Both pubs serve ale and typical home-made pub fayre.
