Cross Keys Public House, Hillam
Cross Keys Public House, Hillam

Hillam is a small village in North Yorkshire, England. Coordinates: 53°45'13?N, 1°13'50?W

The village is very closely linked to Monk Fryston, although both villages maintain separate parish councils. According to the 2001 UK census the population of Hillam parish was 690.[1]

The population estimate for 2005 was 700.[2]

Hillam is situated just over 6 miles west of the town of Selby. It lies 2 miles east of the A1(M) motorway junction 42, and 4 miles north of the M62 junction 33, at Ferrybridge. The A63 road, Leeds to Selby, runs parallel to the northern boundary of the parish.

Primary education needs are served by Monk Fryston Church of England Primary school.

The Parish Church is St Wilfrid's, Monk Fryston (Church of England).

The village is served by a pub, The Cross Keys, winner of Leeds City Council Business in Bloom Gold award in 2007 [3] and Yorkshire in Bloom Gold Award in 2007.[4]

The Ring Tree, a flowering horse-chestnut in Hillam Square, is lit at Christmas and local children gather to enjoy a Christmas celebration each year.

Hillam Historians[5] restored the village pump in Hillam Square during 2006.[6]

Hillam Square retains its red telephone box.

Lower parts of the village were flooded in 2007.

Hillam News, the village magazine, is distributed to each household every two months. Hillam News gives details of recent and forthcoming events, news, comment, current affairs and a precis of Hillam Parish Council meeting minutes.

The York and North Midland Railway passes to the west of Hillam. There is a level crossing known as Hillam Gates.
