Welcome to the Carlton Miniott Website, sponsored by Carlton Miniott Parish Council, to provide accurate information for residents and visitors to the village. 

Carlton Miniott is situated to the west of Thirsk on the A61 main road to Ripon with good access to both the A19 and A1M roads making it an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. To the east lie the North York Moors and the North Yorkshire coast with its picturesque villages and the bustling coastal resorts of Whitby and Scarborough. To the west are the Yorkshire Dales with their attractive and varied landscapes ideal for the artist, photographer and hill-walker

The historic city of York is less than an hours' drive away with an efficient Park and Ride service. For those who don't want to drive there is a good rail service and a limited daily bus service from Thirsk. There is a regular bus service to Thirsk, Ripon and Northallerton through Carlton Miniott. 

The village has many other attractions within easy driving distance from Theme Parks to historic castles and monasteries and in the village itself the angler can fish to his heart's content. 

The next Parish Council Meeting will be held at Carlton Miniott Primary School on the 28th July 2014 at 19.30
