Danby Wiske Village

Danby Wiske is a small village in the Vale of Mowbray that breaks the journey along the Coast to Coast path, being midway between Richmond and Ingleby Arncliffe. The village centre is dominated by the White Swan Hotel, where many Coast to Coast walkers settle for the evening. The parish of Danby Wiske, which occupies about 4 miles of the Coast to Coast walk, has the lowest altitude of the whole of the Coast to Coast path.

The council plan to erect a drinking fountain on the large village green outside of the White Swan, and to do all they can to make walkers feel welcome in their village.

The grade 1 listed church, on the south fringe of the village, dates back to early Norman days. It is known for its Norman tympanum (a semi-circular or triangular decorative wall surface over an entrance door, having a lintel and an arch as its permitters) which was made sometime between 1090 and 1120. It is placed above the entrance door so that the figures representing the weighing of the soul will remind those entering the church that the day of judgment is certain.

Outside of the village, to its east, is the lost village of Lazenby and Lazenby Hall.
