Sand Hutton

Sand Hutton is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England, about six miles north-east of York.

Part of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs's Central Science Laboratory is sited at Sand Hutton.

The village has a church and a community hall and is located in an area popular with shooting and other field sports. The village and most of the land is owned by the Church of England Commissioners. Located east and west of the village there are numerous pits used for fishing.

The village was once owned by an eccentric Englishman, Sir Robert Walker, Bt. [Major Sir Robert James Milo Walker, Bt. (1890–1930); 4th Baronet Walker, of Sand Hutton (Lundy, 2007)] He had his own narrow gauge steam railway, which provided transport around his large estate, ['Voyageur' (1914)] and a fire brigade. [Fitzjohn (1928)]
