Amotherby is a village just 3 miles to the west of Malton. With 264 residents living in around 100 houses in the year 2000, it is not a large village with the post office and shop long gone. The housing is mainly stone and borders the long main street which continues onto Kirkbymoorside. The Old Vicarage is on the right, 50 yards from the cross roads and boasts an impressive array of trees. Only one farm now exists in the village but it is surrounded with arable farm land on all sides. The grave  yard  is in the process of being renovated, and when finished, will be a very beautiful example of a traditional English grave yard. As if Christ hadn't enough on his shoulders at the moment, he also has to play host to a nesting bird.

Amotherby, or to use the old name 'Aimundrebi', was in the land of Hugh Son of Baldrick and belonged to the Manor of Hovingham. It is on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the ings by the River Rye supporting an abundance of wildlife. The tied cottages in the village have an 'Allotment' at the top of the village, with 1/6th of an acre each. These have the strange name of 'Canada'.

The railway used to go through the bottom of the village, but was dismantled many years ago. Some residents of the village remember setting off to Scarborough from the station, on the Sunday school  trip. The church of St Helens is situated at the end of a street off to the right about 100yds from the cross roads. The cemetery surrounds the church and spills out into the fields to the north of the church. The primary school off to the left, halfway down the village is highly regarded locally and accepts pupils from all around the area. The 'Queens Head' is the only pub and extends a very warm welcome to all and  offers local hospitality with a fine selection of beer and food. The village sports a tennis court which is in front of the Village Hall right on the cross roads at the top of the village.
For such a small village, there are a surprising number of commercial concerns from quite large food processors to small B&B's. Westlers Food has been in the village for many years, and if you have ever had a hot dog or ham burger at an outdoor function, then the chances are it was made by WESTLERS..... There is a small garage on the main road, 300yds to the east of the cross roads.
