Welcome to Lingdale in North Yorkshire

000151
Lingdale High Street

All photographs contained in this website are copyright © Alison Small and the contributer to this site



Welcome, I have decided to create this site in remembrance of my Great Great Grandfather Mr. John Snowdon, he was a well known figure in the community of Lingdale, owning and running the Lingdale Hotel or Tavern which ever you wish to call it, (many people refer to it as SNOWDONS CORNER) along with many other properties.
I am hoping to gather as much information as possible about the people and history of Lingdale, past & present and allow others to have an insight to how they used to live here in Lingdale North Yorkshire.
The success of this site will depend upon the amount of material I can get to put into it, I am planning to have pages for all types of events and hoping to include some of the census to allow people to research their family history from Lingdale, as it was a mining village and people came from all over the country to reside here.
I would appreciate any information from any source, and also any photographs they are willing to allow me appear on this site.
I can be contacted via email using the email form.

If you have enjoyed looking through the site, or it has brought back happy memories for you, please leave a message in the guest book.

Many Thanks
Alison


Geographical and Historical information from the year 1890.

Lingdale Hotel
also known as Snowdon's corner

Lingdale is a large village in this township, built in the prosperous days of the iron trade for the accommodation of the workmen employed at the neighbouring mines; but since the depression set in, some ten or twelve years ago, the place has been half abandoned, and tenantless houses meet the eye everywhere.

Place Names and their Meanings

Lingdale

Ling is an alternative word for heather. Heather-dale.

Boosbeck

This Viking place name means the stream near the Cow shed. Beck was the Viking word for a stream.
1856 Boosbeck was only on the small bridge over the Boos Beck, Boosbeck as we know it was called Kilton.


Stanghow

Thought to derive from the Viking Stong-how meaning pole hill.

Skelton (See Marske by the Sea)

Skinningrove

This Viking influenced name is thought to mean Skinners grove or pit.

Brotton

This is thought to derive from Brook Ton, the farm near the brook or stream.

Marske by the Sea

Marske-by-the Sea near Redcar and Marske near Richmond are Scandinavian pronunciations of the English word marsh, and were thus settlements near marshy land. Viking influence is demonstrated in these names by the substitution of the English SH sound with the Viking SK. The hardened SK, or SC sounds are found in Viking-influenced place names like Scarborough, Skelton and Skeeby and are quite common in Yorkshire. Such names are rare in County Durham, where SH sounds predominate, but one notable exception is the name of the River Skerne.

Why Nova Scotia?

Can anyone help with this question.

It is mentioned on the new mining memorial in Lingdale and looking at the old maps 1893, the woodland area surrounding Lingdale Mine was called Nova Scotia Wood, is there a link with Nova Scotia, Canada?
