Rillington is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England.

Transport[edit]

Rillington is on the A64 road, approximately 3 miles east of Malton and south-west of Scarborough.

From 1845 until 1930 the village was served by a railway station which connected Rillington on the York to Scarborough Line.[2] Special trains continued until the 1960s, although the station has now been demolished.[3]

Historically part of the East Riding of Yorkshire, an electoral ward in the same name exists. The population of the ward at the 2011 Census was 1,743.[4]

Education[edit]

The village is served by Rillington Community Primary School. It also falls within the catchment area for Norton College.

Infamy[edit]

It was after this village that Rillington Place in Notting Hill west London was named.
