Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Yorkshire  /  North Yorkshire  /  Spofforth
Spofforth is a village in the civil parish of Spofforth with Stockeld in the Harrogate district of North Yorkshire, England. It is located about 3 miles north west of Wetherby and 5 miles south of Harrogate, on the River Crimple, a tributary of the River Nidd.HistorySpofforth grew as a village at the time that Knaresborough was the important town in the area with Harrogate and Wetherby being less so. The village saw the building of the castle in the thirteenth century. Eighteenth century Knaresborough road builder Blind Jack Metcalf spent the latter years of his life in the village and is buried in the church yard. Stockeld Park, a Palladian villa was built in the 19th century. The railway came to Spofforth in 1847 with the building of the Harrogate to Church Fenton Line with Spofforth being the only intermediate station between Wetherby York Road station and Harrogate station. The line closed to passengers in 1964 and to goods in 1966 as part of the Beeching axe. Part of this forms the Harland Way cycle path which runs as far as Thorp Arch.
