Malton has a population of 5000 plus, and has been the historic centre of Ryedale since Roman times. North of the Roman fort site, is the original town of Old Malton, with ancient stone houses and quaint dwellings in the centre of which stands the most beautiful Gilbertine Priory in use in England - St Mary's. The building of a Norman Castle near to the river crossing encouraged the growth of a second town, the modern day Malton. Over the river and joining Malton is Norton on Derwent. The two towns are really one but the locals have a keen sense of locality with both insisting they come from either Malton or Norton. Much building has taken place in the last one hundred years, mostly residential, but many old shops and houses in the town centre have been demolished to build new shops. The visible difference can be seen in a selection of photos from 1910 and 1999.Click here to find out how to sponsor the Malton page

  • The town was bypassed in the eighties, and the loss of through traffic had an instant and beneficial effect on the town. No more five mile hold-ups so the locals came to shop in the town much easier.

  • Alongside Farming, brewing is a traditional Malton industry. At one time nine breweries flourished below the main street to the Derwent, now only one,' Brass Castle Brewery' survives. At one time it was said that you could see two pubs from any point in the town.

  • The neighboring town of Norton is famous as a centre for training racehorses. Thoroughbreds are often seen on their way to and from the gallops on Langton Wold.
