From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sicklinghall is a village and civil parish in North Yorkshire, England that is situated between the town of Wetherby (3 miles (5 km) to the east) and the village of Kirkby Overblow.

In 2007 the population was recorded as 300,[1] increasing to 336 at the 2011 Census.[2]

The village is referred to in the Domesday Book as "Sidingale", in the hundred of Burghshire in the West Riding, and the lord and tenant in chief is noted as the king.[3] In Kirkby's Inquest (1284-5) the village is referred to as Siclinghalle; in the Knights' Fees of 1302 it is Sykelynghall, and in the Nomina Villarum (1315) it is written Sigglinghall.[4]

The main amenities in the village are St Peter's Church (Church of England),[5] the Church of the Immaculate Conception (Roman Catholic) The Scott's Arms (a pub),[6] a primary school and a village hall. There is a pond at either end of the village.

There has been a school in the village of Sicklinghall since at least 1850 when Mrs Fenton Scott of Woodhall built a single storey school house.[7] It is now ran by a new headteacher, Mr Shilito, linked with Goldsbrough Primary. The deputie head, Mr Morris, teaches year 5 and 6, who's T.A is Miss Brown. Years 2, 3 and 4 are taught by Mrs Keetly and Mrs Keyes and reception and year 1 are taught by Miss Bartlett and T.As Mrs Johnsanwhere and Miss Redmond.

The village is surrounded by granges: on the eastern side lie Skerry Grange and Sicklinghall Grange and on the western Addlethorpe Grange. Sicklinghall Grange is set in a 107-acre (0.43 km2) estate, it is the UK residence of racehorse owner, Sir Robert Ogden.[8] However the 'big house' is Stockeld Park, formerly a hunting lodge of the nearby Harewood estate and now at the centre of a network of tenanted farms.

Sicklinghall has a range of equestrian-related centres in and around the village's centre, with the Sicklinghall Park livery located in the village centre, and Hill Croft Farm Riding Stables located about 0.6 miles (1 km) west of the village on the road towards Kirkby Overblow.

There is a Roman Catholic convent situated by the Church of the Immaculate Conception and monastery dating from 1852 to the south of the village.

Sicklinghall has a cricket team playing in the local Wetherby Cricket League. The ground is situated at the top of the village, the club having moved from nearby Stockeld Park in 2002. In 2016 an arson attack on the cricket club destroyed the pavilion.[9]
