Grewelthorpe


Grewelthorpe is a little village near to Ripon in North Yorkshire.  The photos at the beginning of this post were taken just outside of Ripon en route to Grewelthorpe.  They have nothing to do with this post, I just thought I’d include them because it was strange to just be driving through a built-up area and spot a group of llamas on the hillside.


Our main reason for coming to Grewelthorpe was because when I was researching my family tree, several of my ancestors used to live there.  So, we arrived and had a wander around the picturesque village, and a lady from the village hall pointed us in the direction of the specific house we were looking for where my ancestors used to live.  It was quite a big house, the part on the right we think was the original building, and it still has the same name today.
