Nestled between Aldborough and Great Ouseburn, the Dunsforths are home to just over 200 people. Both are linear villages and Lower Dunsforth boasts a fantastic circular walk along the River Ure: click here for details.
A beautiful church which originally dates from 1861 - St Mary’s – sits between The Old Vicarage and The School House within Lower Dunsforth and Upper Dunsforth enjoys a fascinating nature reserve. Upper Dunsforth’s Carr Nature reserve includes a series of wet meadows and woodland, supporting a wide variety of wetland plants and an interesting and diverse range of insects and wildlife: click here for more information.
Every year the villagers and church work together to host a popular summer country fair which includes an array of stalls, dance events, pony rides and a dog competition.
A village meeting of the Parish of the Dunsforths is held on a regular basis to discuss village matters (see Parish of the Dunsforths page for agendas and minutes) and a friendly church committee is also very active within the community (see the events page for details).
