Yorkshire A to Y


North Yorkshire unitary authority area  X 

These are the places within North Yorkshire, the new unitary authority responsible for all main council functions from April 1, 2023 after the Government scrapped the seven huge district authorities introduced in 1974.

The North Yorkshire authority covers 3,109 square miles (8,052 sq km)^ and stretches around 92 miles from west to east.

The area is by far the largest covered by any authority in England. Northumberland in second place is only 1,961 square miles (5,078 sq km). Across the UK, North Yorkshire ranks second in area behind only the Highland area of Scotland.

The area continues to be considerably larger than the pre-1974 North Riding of Yorkshire as North Yorkshire incorporated large parts of the West Riding and some of the East Riding, although some northern fringes were lost to what are now Durham County, Stockton-on-Tees, Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland unitary authorities.

The Government also proposes having an elected mayor to cover all of the North Yorkshire unitary authority area plus also the City of  York unitary authority area.

North Yorkshire has the second-highest authority area population in Yorkshire. Totals for North Yorkshire's seven former districts at the time of the 2021 Census are around 615,500*. That places it behind the 812,000 of the Leeds metropolitan district, even though North Yorkshire covers more than 14 times the area, and ahead of the 556,500 population in the Sheffield metropolitan district.

As there are around 700 towns and villages being maintained by the North Yorkshire unitary authority, we continue our indexes of the former districts to help make searches for places easier to manage (see links at foot of page).

Our Gazetteer list here only includes places in the administrative county of North Yorkshire, the new unitary authority. The wider ceremonial county of North Yorkshire includes places in STOCKTON-ON-TEES , MIDDLESBROUGH and REDCAR & CLEVELAND unitary authority areas, while the area served by North Yorkshire police and fire services also includes the YORK unitary authority. Some places which were in the pre-1974 North Riding of Yorkshire are now in the DURHAM COUNTY unitary authority.
