Take a look at some old black and white pics of Amotherby
Amotherby was one of the first two communities to benefit from a pioneering, multi million pound superfast broardband project, "Superfast North Yorkshire" contact your internet provider in spring 2013 for details of the speed boost.
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.
