On the edge of the North York Moors in North Yorkshire, a few miles from the North Sea, lies the working village of Moorsholm, pronounced locally as Moors-hum. The name derives from Viking and means quite literally, ‘Home on the Moor’ and the village was documented in the Domesday Book Its close proximity to the North Sea meant there was always threat of possible attack from invaders, from the Vikings onwards as seen byt the fortified houses of nearby Loftus and Skelton and Skelton castle itself. The historic market town of Guisborough is the nearest town, dominated by an Augustinian Priory founded in 1119 by Robert Bruce. To the south is the famous fishing port of Whitby, always very popular with tourists. Within easy reach of Moorsholm are some of the finest stretches of the Yorkshire coastline as well as the Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire Wolds and the North York Moors. Moorsholm is very much a working, farming community but it is blessed with an abundance of natural resources causing the residents to take a practical interest in renewable energy and the recently completed ECO project has proved a great success. Cow Close Wood is a local nature reserve and semi-natural ancient woodland looked after by the Woodland Trust.
