Welcome to Farlington

Farlington field

Farlington is a small, picturesque farming village in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire.

The village has a 12th century church, St. Leonards, a good pub, the Blacksmith’s Arms, and has a small stream, Farlington Beck running through it.

Farlington is ideally situated for a walk in the Hambleton Hills, a visit to Castle Howard, a day out in the historic city of York, or the market town of Malton.

Rural Crime Patrol

Due to the recent spike in crime within our rural communities our Rural Task Force team has been out conducting targeted patrols. 

Over the last couple of days a stolen quad bike was seized and three individuals were detained.

Our local teams are working together to disrupt and deal with criminal activity in your area.

Public Survey: Let’s Talk Rubbish

North Yorkshire Council collects around 310,000 tonnes of household waste each year from over 300,000 properties. About 45 per cent of this is reused, recycled or composted.

As part of Let’s Talk Local and Let’s Talk Money, you told us that we should focus on providing the best value for money and tackling climate change. At the moment there are seven different ways of collecting your recycling. Having just one way of doing this would be more efficient and give you better value for money.

Like you, we want to keep our county attractive and clean so everyone can enjoy it.

Poppies of Remembrance

Poppy Field

In 2022 and 2023 Farlington residents rose to the occasion and knitted beautiful poppies to decorate the St Leonard’s church gates in the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday. We still have those poppies and will putting them on the gates this November. But we still have lots of gate and railing space which could use more poppies. If you would like to knit one or more poppies they will be very gratefully received. I will collect them or you can leave them on the font, just inside the church door. If you need a knitting pattern, please let me know and I will get a copy to you.

With thanks,

Sally Wright, Churchwarden
