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.

Suspicious vehicle in village

A pale blue Ford Focus has been seen today in the village with 3 unknown occupants acting suspiciously, seemingly filming as they were driving through.  

If you see this vehicle, please note the registration if possible and report it to the Police via 101 or 999 immediately.  Please be vigilant with locking doors, windows, vehicles, outbuildings etc. 

Regards,

Sue Scotter

Rural Services Network

The Rural Services Network, as the national champion for rural services, has put together a series of asks which we want to see the political parties adopt in their manifestos. The challenges rural communities face cannot be tackled in isolation, our communities need homes they can afford, with good jobs, connectivity to enable businesses to grow and access to public services that are fairly funded.
