Explore the Nun Monkton side of the river


Nun Monkton

A time-stood-still village where cattle graze the ancient green, one of only two working greens in the country. The green is being actively restored to semi-natural grassland, rich with flowers. It has the remains of a mediaeval cross, an old petrol pump as well as reputedly the tallest maypole in England. The current Scot’s Pine maypole stands at 27 metres, and on Feast Day 2004, it was topped off in style by a villager dressed as Elvis, climbing up to spin the weather vane. 


The Alice Hawthorn Inn

A country pub, voted Yorkshire Life Dining Pub of the Year 2017, The Alice is settled in the middle of the village overlooking the green.Visit website.
