Old Nunthorpe

  • Description

    "A sleepy village since by-passed by the A172, Nunthorpe was until 1926 part of the Parish of Great Ayton. In the 12th century a Cistercian nunnery was established here, hence the name. The location of the priory and mill can only be surmised. They did however gain a somewhat dubious reputation for they were banished to Baysdale, a remote dale on the North York Moors."
