St Mary's Church Goathland built in 1896.

Goathland Village: St Mary's Church Goathland built in 1894-1896 by W.H. Brierley, on the site of a medieval church.

It is pleasant but busy village in the summer because its tourist attraction status has been much enhanced by the (Yorkshire Television)/ITV's TV '1960's' set series "Heartbeat". However, it is good starting point for several really nice walks in the surrounding country side. (see page 17-18)

More on Goathland (from Wikipedia)
Goathland is a village and civil parish in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, it is in the North York Moors national park due north of Pickering, off the A169 to Whitby. It has a station on the steam-operated North Yorkshire Moors Railway line.

Goathland village is 500 feet above sea level and has a history extending from Viking times. The name Goathland is probably a corruption of 'good land'. Alternatively, it may come from 'Goda's land', Goda being an Old English personal name.

 In 1109, King Henry I granted land to Osmund the Priest and the brethren of the hermitage of Goathland, then called Godelandia, for the soul of his mother Queen Matilda, who had died in 1083. This is recorded in a charter held at Whitby Abbey.

Goathland village was a spa town in the 19th century. There are many hotels and guest houses in the village. The largest, the Mallyan Spout Hotel, is named after a nearby waterfall. There is a caravan site, reached by driving along the track which is the site of the older railway route, 1835 to 1860.

Much of the surrounding land is owned by the Duchy of Lancaster. The Duchy's tenants have a common right extending for hundreds of years to graze their black faced sheep on the village green and surrounding moorland.

Heartbeat connection
The village was the setting of the fictional village of Aidensfield in the Heartbeat television series set in the 1960s. Many landmarks from the series are recognisable, including the stores, garage/funeral directors, the public house and the railway station. The pub is called the Goathland Hotel, but in the series is the Aidensfield Arms. After filming for some years a replica was built in the studio.

On the left is 'Aidensfield's Scripps Garage and Funeral Services'. There also glorious walks over the surrounding countryside and return to the Goathland Hotel (above left) for refreshment.
