Modern housing in Fryton
Modern housing in Fryton

Fryton is a small village in North Yorkshire, England with a population of around 50. It is located in its own parish west of Slingsby and a few miles north of the prominent estate of Castle Howard. Because of its small size it is often associated with Slingsby for purposes such as the official Census.

The village is in a rural location and the parish is predominantly agricultural with potatoes forming an important crop.

In 2005 Cherrygarth Farm started to diversify from potatoes and converted dis-used farm buildings into luxury holiday accommodation. These went on to win the Yorkshire Tourist Board's award for Best Newcomer to Tourism in 2006.

Despite its small size Fryton features in the history of Yorkshire railways. The Malton-Gilling branch line passed through Fryton until it closed to passenger traffic in 1931. It is recorded that on 31 July 1961 a crossing keeper was killed at Fryton crossing.

[edit] Millennium project

This project combined an initial historical survey with a heritage trail. The trail was accompanied by three heritage mosaics, benches and interpretative leaflets.

The group carried out preliminary studies of the immediate area before starting the project. These studies uncovered a number of tumuli, earthworks, outline details of a former railway, and Viking, Roman and Neolithic connections.

[edit] History

Bulmer's History and Directory of North Yorkshire (1890)] descrives Fryton as follows; "FRYTON is a township in this parish, situated about 1½ miles E. of Hovingham. Its estimated extent is 1,297 acres, and its rateable value, £1,285. The Earl of Carlisle is lord of the manor and sole owner. The township comprises three farms and nine cottages, containing 93 inhabitants. The soil is in parts clay and limestone."
