The Local Area Guide to living in Haxby

Haxby, a small town within the boundary of the City of York, sits on the banks of the River Foss. It's conveniently located just five miles to the north of York, making it popular with commuters, while retaining its own historic town centre and distinct charm. Haxby has a particularly rural atmosphere, with open farmland to the north and the York Outer Ring Road to the south.

Haxby's centre was designated a conservation area by the local authority in 1976, and as a result, there's a fascinating blend of well-preserved architecture ranging from stately Victorian homes to 18th century shopfronts and churches. There are a number of leisure facilities available for residents, with an estimated 50 clubs and associations, including football, netball, drama, and arts and crafts. The Ethel Ward playing field features an extensive selection of children's playground equipment while four other green play areas are available throughout this attractive town.

Information about the local residents

At the time of the 2001 census, Haxby had a population of 8,754. Many of the town's residents commute to nearby York, but Haxby is not considered a typical dormitory suburb partially due to the large percentage of senior citizens who live there. In the past couple of decades, there have been a number of retirement complexes which have been constructed in Haxby, adding to this percentage. Yet the senior citizen demographic is balanced out at the other end by a high number of young families, and there is also a high percentage of children under the age of 16 who call Haxby home. The balanced mix of commuting professionals, senior citizens, and young people that help keep Haxby a thriving community at any age.
