Kirkbymoorside is a small
market townin the Ryedaledistrict of North Yorkshire, Englandwhich lies approximately 25 miles north of Yorkmidway between Pickering and Helmsley, and has a population of approximately 3,000.
Historically a market town, Kirkbymoorside served as a trading hub for the local area, and still holds a popular weekly market.
There is some dispute as to the correct spelling (alternative spelling being "Kirbymoorside") but it is usually spelled with the 'k'. The non-k spelling is never used in an official capacity within the town; though some dispute of the spelling still exists. All sign-posts read 'Kirkbymoorside'. 'Kirk' means 'church' and 'by' is the
Vikingword for 'settlement', so the name translates as 'settlement with a church by the moorside'. A valley near the town is known as Kirkdale.

Ryder Cupcaptain Bernard Gallacheropened the club's new clubhouse in November 1998. The club is celebrating its unofficial centenary in 2008.
Kirkbymoorside was the last town in England to adopt
double-yellow lines(to restrict parking).
Kirkbymoorside was connected to the national railway network from 1875 to 1964 (when the track was lifted). However, the service was infrequent and not acceptable compared to today's level of service for public transport.
Nowadays, bus route #128 from
Helmsleyto Scarborough passes through the town via West End and Piercy End. The service operates to an hourly clockface timetable for much of Mondays-Saturdays in peak summer. In the evenings and for most of the year, there is slightly less than 1 bus per hour.
In peak summer, most services extend west beyond
Helmsleyto Sutton Bank. [cite web|url=http://www.northyorkstravel.info/pdf/YNBO128.pdf|title="128 Route Timetable"|accessdate=2008-07-15|publisher= "Scarborough & District"]
