It contains the township of Clareton, and is situate on a branch of the river Nidd. It is a station on the York and Harrogate branch of the North Eastern railway.

On the abolition of alien priories, its revenue was given by Henry VI. to King's College, Cambridge. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Ripon, value £65, in the patronage of Lord Stourton. The church is dedicated to St. Martin.
