The village used to be in the Wapentake of Pickering Lythe. A cairn in the village dedicated to King Alfred who supposedly sought sanctuary in a cave here before being removed to Driffield where he died.[1]

On 18 August 2009 a 500 lb unexploded bomb was destroyed in a controlled explosion next to the village which necessitated the evacuation of hundreds of local residents from Ebberston and Allerston.[2] The bomb hailed from a 'Whitley Mark V Bomber', of the No. 102 Squadron RAF, based at RAF Linton-on-Ouse which crash landed on 27 October 1940, with all personnel having bailed out and survived.[3]


Ebberston is on the A170 Thirsk to Scarborough road.[4] Bus service 128 runs from Scarborough to Helmsley with 11 through services and 4 terminating at Pickering.[5]

Between 1882 and 1950 the village was served by Ebberston railway station on the Forge Valley Line between Scarborough and Pickering.[6]


The 11th century Church, St Mary the Virgin, is to the west of the village just off the A170.[7]
