Huntington, City of York


Huntington, City of York

Huntington is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of City of York in the north of England, on the River Foss, north of York and south of Strensall.

According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 9,277. Prior to 1996 it had been part of the Ryedale district.

There has been a church (All Saints) in this village since 1086. Huntington originally included the small township of West Huntington, including West Huntington Hall. Most of the land associated with West Huntington has now become the separate parish of New Earswick. Huntington's old village, including All Saints' church (see below) and the nearby West Huntington Hall, was made a Conservation Area in 1991.

Local ameneties

The "Flag & Whistle" Pub along with the "Blacksmiths Arms" and " The Yearsley Grove" make up the local watering holes. However, "The Yearsley Grove" pub now also runs a small Indian restaurant, although the Yearsley Grove pub is now closed (due to financial difficulties according to 'The Press') the small Indian restaurant at the rear is still open (as of 8th September 2008).

The Parish Churches

All Saints' church is set in the countryside between Huntington and New Earswick. Its location is on Church Lane, off the Old Village in Huntington. It sits beside the river Foss which runs between the two villages. It is a popular location for life ceremonies, especially weddings, and has an attractive and well-maintained churchyard. There is a large carpark nearby which is in constant use all week by Huntington residents (for walks along the river, exercising dogs, horses, etc.)

St. Andrew's church is set on the main Huntington Road surrounded by trees, and by the Link Road connecting Huntington to New Earswick. It is close to Huntington Secondary school, just opposite the Bowls Club and the Flag & Whistle Pub. The site includes a hall used for numerous youth and community groups during the week as well as the Ladybirds nursery school and a School of Dance. A large scout hut to the rear is used most evenings.

Both All Saints' and St. Andrew's are founder members of Churches Together in Huntington and New Earswick, together with Huntington Methodist Church, New Earswick Methodist Church, St. Paulinus' Catholic Church and the New Earswick Religious Society of Friends ('the Quakers').

Education

Huntington School is a very successful and oversubscribed mixed comprehensive secondary school. The school is a technology college with approximately 1,600 pupils. The school has a particularly successful sixth form, which was ranked 19th in the country for its results in 2005. The current head teacher is Mr. John Tomsett.
