Nun Monkton Tips (1)

If you're coming into or out...

If you're coming into or out of York on the A59 look out for a turn off to the village of Nun Monkton. On the map at the bottom of the page you can see Moor Monkton, well Nun Monkton is the next turning on the right as you head out of York.

Nun Monkton lies at the end of a two mile stretch of road that leads only to the village, so there is no through traffic. The village is set around a green, which is one of the largest in England. The green sports a Maypole which is 45 feet high, and also a duckpond (with ducks!). The village green is a great spot for a picnic.

At the very end of the village is the Church, at the end of a driveway. Clustered around the Church are some very nice houses that used to be part of the country estate.

The pub in Nun Monkton is The Alice Hawthorne and it is an excellent, typically English, country pub, serving good food, wine, and beer.

Near to Nun Monkton is the famous battle site of Marston Moor which lies off the A59 on the opposite side to Nun Monkton.
