Goldsborough Cold Store, one of forty built during the Second World War at road and rail links, still in use as a storage depot

Flaxby was once part of the wapentake of Claro.[1] It is also part of the ecclesiastical parish of Goldsborough (St Mary).[2]

In 1994, an Early Iron Age farmstead of the 7th–6th centuries BC was discovered by archaeologists, but the site was abandoned until the late Roman period.[3]
