A vibrant village of approximately 400 homes that sits just inside the North York Moors National Park between the moors and the sea. Easington is easily accessible by bus, as it is situated on the A174 on the coastal route to Whitby. It’s name dates from an early period of Anglo-Saxon history, and is one of the many evidences of the existence of clanship among our Saxon forefathers. Here settled the Esings or sons of Esa from whom, according to Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, Ida the first King of Northumbria was descended, and their homestead staked out and surrounded by a hedge called Esingtune or Easington.
Easington boasts some historic buildings within its boundary, the church was founded before the Norman Conquest, and was given to the priory of Guisbro’, by Roger de Rosel. All Saints’ church is Grade II listed,
re built in 1772 and 1888-89, with furnishings by the firm of ‘Mousey’ Thompson of Kilburn. Grinkle Park, formerly the home of the Palmer family who funded the build of the church, is now a luxurious hotel.
