Ganton, North Yorkshire

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ganton is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England. It is about 7 miles (11 km) west of the coastal town of Filey, and 9 miles (14 km) south-west of Scarborough.

The village appears in the Domesday Book and its name is thought to mean 'Galma's farmstead'.[2] Ganton is situated on the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail and Centenary Way, long-distance footpaths. Its most notable landmark is its golf course. The Ganton Golf Club has hosted the Ryder Cup matches in 1949, The Amateur Championship three times, in 1964, 1977 and 1991, and the Walker Cup in 2003.

From 1845 to 1930, the village was served by Ganton station on the York to Scarborough railway line.[3] An 18th-century coaching inn at the centre of the village has since been converted to a public house with bed and breakfast.

In 1823 Ganton was a parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire and the Wapentake of Dickering. The church of St Nicholas was under the patronage of the local Legard baronets. Population at the time was 278, which included the nearby settlement of Brompton. Occupations included three farmers, two carpenters, a gardener, a stone mason, a tailor, a licensed victualler & blacksmith, a druggist & gun maker, and a machine maker. There was a schoolmaster, a vicar, a curate, and Sir Thomas Legard of Ganton Hall. Two carriers operated between the village and Beverley and Driffield twice weekly. To the south-west of Ganton was the settlement of Ganton Dale Inn, which contained a public house that was also a post house.[4]

The village church on Main Street is dedicated to St Nicholas. Ganton cricket team plays at the ground overlooking the A64 next to the village hall.
