History

The name 'Church Fenton' means a village with a church in fen or marshland.[3] The village was recorded along with nearby Little Fenton as Fentun in the Domesday Book of 1086, with no mention of a church. However in 1338 the establishment of church was signified by the name Kirk Fenton.[4] The two names have been variously used to describe either the village or a parish including the hamlets of Little Fenton to the South and Biggin to the South-East.[5] The area was agricultural with some quarry work until the arrival of the Leeds and Selby Railway in 1839, resulting in the development of local industry, including a brickworks and tileworks.[4][6] There was also a gas holder and tank works in the 1920s.[6] Further lines to Harrogate, Leeds and York followed, so that at one point there were three stations. All but one were demolished in the 1990s.[4] A row of terraced houses is called Chicory Row indicating the crop which was grown, boiled and bottled locally at one time.[6]

In 1936 RAF Church Fenton was built as a fighter base and took part in the defence of northern cities and the east coast during the Second World War.Leeds and Selby Railway Later it was used as a pilot training base.[6][4]

It was in the West Riding of Yorkshire,[7] but is now in the county of North Yorkshire.

Amenities

The village has a post office and one public house: The Fenton Flyer, though there were formerly three.[6] The school, Kirk Fenton Parochial Church of England Primary School reflects the name of the parish.[8] Village commuters are served by Church Fenton railway station. The village is also home to a Met Office Weather station.[9]

The studio scenes for the 2016 television series Victoria were filmed in a converted aircraft hangar in Church Fenton.[10]
