Kirkbymoorside or Kirbymoorside as it is sometimes spelled is midway between Helmsley and Pickering. There is some dispute as to the correct spelling but it is usually spelled with the 'k'. The name translates to settlement from the Viking word, 'by', and Kirk means church' so it means settlement with a church. The church still stands in it's modern form half way down the main street. It has some Saxon and Norman fragments in it's masonry. Click HERE for details of the church services.
Through the years, two castles have stood in the town and small fragments of one can be seen to this day on the north edge of the town. Stones from one castle were used to build the Toll House in the centre of the market place.
Many good pubs and restaurants can be found in the town and good sprinkling of local shops with the customary good service and courteous treatment of their customers. The Memorial Hall is to be found in the main street and holds many local social and official functions.
One of the most famous residents was the 2nd Duke of Buckingham who had an interesting life, culminating in a mysterious death in Bob Gardiner's bedroom in Buckingham House, Kirkbymoorside.
