Thornton-le-Dale is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England, about three miles east of Pickering on the edge of the North York Moors National Park.A thatched cottage in the village has appeared on countless calendars and chocolate boxes over the years. Thornton Dale is also famous for its yearly shows where people from the area gather to compete in various events.On the first Saturday in December, the Village Lights Committee stage the annual Christmas lights 'Switch On'. This is the culmination of a whole year's work of raising money and putting up the lights around the village.In November each year the Thornton le Dale players put on a play in the village hall. This normally runs for three nights and is always well attended and enjoyed by many villagers and visitors from the surrounding area.The route of The White Rose Way, a long distance walk from Leeds to Scarborough, North Yorkshire also passes through.HistoryRichard Rolle, the English Mystic, was probably born in Thornton in the Dale, and Sir Hugh Cholmeley, 1st Baronet, was born at Roxby Castle in the village, then known as Thorton-on-the-Hill.
