Kirk Hammerton

A beautiful Yorkshire village

Kirk Hammerton is a pretty rural village in North Yorkshire, partly bordered to the North by the A59 and partly by the River Nidd to the South and East. It is situated almost perfectly equidistant between York and Harrogate and is connected to them by the A59 and the Leeds-York railway line. This website is run and maintained by the Parish Council. It is committed to understanding the concerns of villagers and acting with integrity and impartiality to promote a happy and cohesive environment for all.
