Strensall is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of the City of York in the north of England, on the River Foss north of York and north-east of Haxby. Prior to 1996 it had been part of the Ryedale district.

The nearby Strensall Common is a Special Area of Conservation, an example of lowland heathland habitat covering over 5 km². Strensall Common also has an army firing range and training area, and a part of the Ministry of Defence.


[edit] Population

According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 3,815.

[edit] History

Strensall is referred to in the Domesday Book as Streonaeshalch, after Streona, a personal name, and halch, a corner of land. It belonged to the Archbishops of York.

Strensall is also the probable site of many historical events supposed to have occurred in Whitby, most significantly the 'Whitby' Synod of 664. This is due to a complication in ninth-century documents, which describe Steonaeshalch as being Whitby (the name Whitby is Viking).
