Welcome to the website for the Parish of Slingsby, Fryton and South Holme.

The village of Slingsby lies 6 miles west of Malton on the B1257 road to Hovingham, Helmsley and the North Yorkshire Moors. Slingsby is about 2 miles north of Castle Howard and 16 miles from York.

The hamlet of Fryton lies half a mile west of Slingsby. Like Slingsby, it stretches between the Malton to Hovingham road and the line of the disused Thirsk and Malton railway that closed in 1964. South Holme lies a mile and half north of Slingsby, on the road to Ness and the River Rye.

Our website provides information for residents and visitors alike. Here you will find information about our parish and community, including details of our clubs and societies, and a guide to local businesses.

Slingsby’s important buildings and places of interest in the area are described. We include an up-to-date listing of news and events. If you have more time, you will not want to miss the comprehensive history of the parish.
