The principal feature of attraction here is Skelton castle, once the elegant seat of John Hall Stephenson, Esq. the author of 'Crazy Tales,' &c. but now the residence of John Wharton, Esq. The church, dedicated to All Saints, is a neat modern structure, the living is a perpetual curacy in the gift of the Archbishop of York. The population of the parish, in 1821, was 1,235, including 791 in the township."
