Moulton Hall is a 17th-century manor house, owned and maintained by the National Trust, but tenanted by Viscount Eccles and his wife, the Baroness Eccles of Moulton. It is possible to gain admission for 50 Pence via prior arrangement.
The village pub is called the Black Bull inn.
After the Norman Conquest the manor was transferred to the Earls of Richmond.
Moulton changed hands many times, belonging to the Marshall, Wright, Smithson, and Shuttleworth families.
The village lies just to the east of the A1, but access from the village has been restricted to southbound traffic only for several years. Motorists intending to travel north must head to Scotch Corner.
The village is served by a rural bus route between Darlington and Richmond.
The former railway station at Moulton End (3 miles away) is named after Moulton, but the nearest station was actually Scorton railway station. Both stations closed in 1969 with the abandonment of the Eryholme-Richmond branch line.
