Crakehall in the Autumn

Mark Denton is a professional photographer living in the village - see his own personal website
where he has over 4000 fantastic photo's from all over the United Kingdom,
from here!

Mark has a large selection of beautiful cards of Crakehall, among others, currently on sale at the village shop.

Heating Oil Co-operative . . .

. . . now has over 80 members and, by placing
bulk orders for oil, usually achieves prices
per litre that are between 3p and 5p
cheaper than could be obtained by individuals ordering independently.
The minimum order is 500 litres but
the price per litre is the same as an order
for larger amounts so you don't
need to let your tank get nearly empty
to get a good deal.
The schedule of dates for orders is awaited.

The Police and Crime Commissioner . . .

. . . for North Yorkshire, Julia Mulligan made a commitment to speak
with residents on a regular basis and her surgeries will form
the foundation of that promise.
The surgeries will be divided into 15min private appointments and people
can either email
or ring 01765 641839 to request an appointment.

More surgery dates will be issued over the coming weeks and will be
moved around the county to ensure as many people as possible
can have the opportunity to speak privately with Julia.

'Slide show of the village in 

. . . is a small, compact village just 4 miles
from the A1(M)(Junc.51) on the main A684 road
from Bedale to the Lake District, which puts it at
the gateway to Wensleydale.

Nestling between two beautiful National Parks,
it makes an ideal centre from which to explore
the Dales and Moors of North Yorkshire.

The Mobile Post Office is in the village, parked adjacent to the Petrol Station - - at the following times:
Monday - 9 to 10.30am
Thursday - 9 to 10.30am
Friday - 13.45 to 14.45pm

Around the Village
in pictures.

Within the village there are a number of holiday cottages and caravan sites as well as
many well known nearby attractions within about 30 minutes drive.

Although North Yorkshire has many attractive villages, Crakehall has rightly been
described as the prettiest of those in the lower Dales.

The five-acre village green with its giant sycamores and lime trees is dominated by Crakehall Hall and is enclosed by stone built cottages dating back to the 1750's.

Overlooked by the village Inn, the green hosts both cricket (with an annual match against the stars of Emmerdale) and quoits to provide the typical village green scene in summer.
