Kilton, North Yorkshire
The village is recorded in the Domesday Book as Chiltune, which is possibly derived from a combination of Old Norse and Old English of "narrow-valley farm/settlement' or a Scandanavianised form of cilda-tun, 'children's farm/settlement." The village is to the west of Kilton Beck Valley, a narrow cut that carries the Kilton Beck to the sea at Skinningrove. The remains of Kilton Castle lie to the south east and the village is 7 miles (11 km) east of Guisborough and 1.5 miles (2.4 km) south of Brotton.
