Skelton is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of the City of York, in North Yorkshire, England. It is 4minorth northwest of the city of York, west of Haxby, and on the east bank of the River Ouse. Skelton was in the ancient royal Forest of Galtres and covers 977.3 hectares (3.77 square miles). Skelton was made a conservation area in 1973.The village name probably began as the Anglo-Saxon 'Shelfton' – 'the settlement on high ground'– becoming the present 'Skelton' under the invading Danes. The village, along with nearby Overton, is mentioned in the Domesday Book.According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 1,640. Between 1974 and 1996 it was in the Ryedale district and prior to 1974 in the historic North Riding of Yorkshire.HistorySkelton is mentioned in the Domesday Book, but its name indicates Anglo-Saxon and Danish influences.Skelton Grange was built by the Place family originally in the 18th century and rebuilt after fire in 1866. 'The Grange' was finally sold in 1981 due to a lack of funds for upkeep. It was demolished by a local property developer for a large housing development on the site.The York Corporation bought Fairfield House on the opposite side of the main Road in 1918 and opened it as a tuberculosis sanatorium in the following year. It is now a hotel. (A tuberculosis dispensary was also opened in Castlegate in the City of York, in 1913, but no longer exists.)
