The ancient village of Sinnington, near Pickering, has been in existence since the Doomsday Book of 1087 and has an interesting church dating back to the 12th century. The church has Saxon and Norman features and was restored to its current state in 1904. Close by is a Tithe barn of a similar age to the church, where at one time, it is believed to be St. Michael's Chapel for nuns.

A by-pass in the late thirties changed Sinnington into a peaceful and unspoilt village, just 400 yards from the main A170. The village boasts a maypole and an attractive little river, from which to take a stroll and watch the ducks.

It is a great place from which to start an energetic walk to Cropton or Appleton-le-Moors, a walk of some 7 miles. Pony trekking is available in the village and there are golf courses at Kirkbymoorside, Malton and Ganton.
