Nun Monkton is at the end of a dead-end road, off the A59 a few miles out of york (and quite close to the A1). Pretty much the only way to get there is by car, unless you happen to own a boat (see "general" tips).
The fact that it is a dead-end means there's no through traffic (doh) which gives the village it's quiet air. It probably also led to it's demise in some ways because there would surely be an increase in custom for the pub, shop (now gone) etc if there was through traffic.

Many villages have a "feast day" at which there are various activities and fetes. The Nun Monkton feast day is to celebrate St. Peter's day, and is usually held on the first Saturday of June. So we missed it by exactly one week.
Next year I'll make an effort to get there on the right day ;-)

This whole village is "off the beaten path", lying some 3 miles down a dead end off the main road. There's no passing trade and it's only really visited by people who are "in the know". And there are more of those people now that I've taken my VT friends there ;-)
