Over the course of April we are exploring the studies registered with the Society for One-Place Studies featuring those that correspond to the relevant letter of the alphabet.
What is a One Place Study? That is a fine question and rather than me explain, I will refer you to the Society’s informative website. If you are interested in joining us and /or registering a study we of course welcome you. You can find the joining information HERE.
R is for...
Rillington: For this study, registered with the Society for One-Place Studies, we head to North Yorkshire. Historically, this parish contained the township of Rillington and the chapelry of Scampston. It is divided into north and south as the parish is divided in half by the A64. An ancient parish, it was mentioned in the Domesday Book.
The study commenced in 2013 and has its own website on which Pam, the study host, comments that 'none of my [her] forebears were ever there. Sometimes you simply just get drawn to a place.' Pam welcomes contact from those with an interest in the parish.
