Hipswell is a village and civil parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. It acts in many ways as a suburb of Catterick Garrison, into which it merges. It is the birthplace of noted English theologian John Wycliffe, leader of the Lollard Movement.

Hipswell Hall

Hipswell parish is formed by the villages of Hipswell with Colburn and Scotton. Hipswell is served by the church of St. John the Evangelist, Hipswell Road, Hipswell.[1]

Situated close to the church, Hipswell Hall is a 15th-century manor house, with alterations dated 1596, possibly originally part of a fortified house, built for the Fulthorpe family.[2]
