Visit Malton and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Malton, North Yorkshire. It is in fact two places, Old Malton and New, with the site of a Roman station between them. New Malton was built after the old village was burnt down in 1138 to drive out the Scots. It is a teeming market town for a large farming district and its big irregular square is full of activity. St Michael's Church competes for attention in the middle of things. It is a sturdy-looking Norman church with a 15th-century tower and not too successful l9th-century additions. The spire on Church Hill belongs to St Leonard's Church, now redundant, and the subject of proposals for transfer to the Roman Catholics. It is Norman in character with a Perpendicular tower and 19th-century spire. It contains an amusing monument to an iron-founder, Arthur Gibson, who died in 1837. Of metal entirely, it carries a brass plate showing the deceased in prayer and at drink. He designed it himself. The Town Hall around the corner from the square is 18th-century and a plaque on it records that Edmund Burke was Malton's M.P. from 1780 to 1794. Among buildings of interest in the centre is the Cross Keys Inn in Wheelgate which has a medieval crypt, possibly from the former Hospital of St Mary Magdalene here.
Old Malton is on the road to Pickering, with old-fashioned cottages and inns. Its Church of St Mary is built in part from the church of the Gilbertine priory founded in c. 1150.
