About the Hall
Erected in 1949, the hall sits on a vantage point offering very fine views across Ryedale and the surrounding North York Moors. After a period of several years deterioration and thanks to kind grant aid from North Yorkshire County Council and the North York Moors National Park – and lots of volunteer effort from the village – the hall was brought back into use in 2008. In Autumn 2010, with help from LEADER, Ryedale Council and Awards for All we replaced the roof, installed a brand new kitchen and modernised all the heating and lighting, and installed wheelchair access. In 2014 the hall was double glazed, improving insulation, and blackout blinds were added to enable films to be screened throughout the year. These projects have also been grant-aided by the Big Lottery Fund, Ryedale Council and the National Park Authority.
Situated opposite the church in the delightful North Yorkshire village of Cold Kirby, the village hall is a focal point for community events and activities (see our ‘What’s on’ page). Situated right alongside the Cleveland Way, one of the UK’s most popular long distance footpaths, and on the Inns Way, the hall can accomodate up to 100 people. It is available for private hire at a very reasonable price (see our ‘Bookings’ page) as well as being used for community functions. The hall now has wheelchair access. As well as the main hall there is also a smaller room which houses our community library and is suitable for meetings of up to a dozen people.
