The local area guide to living in Middleton Tyas

Middleton Tyas is a tranquil village & civil parish situated in Richmondshire, North Yorkshire. The village boasts a passionate and active community that has helped to make it a pleasant and peaceful place to live. The locals are always keen to support a good cause and rally around a common goal. When the local shop was to be sold by the owner in 2003, the community set out to create their own villager-run shop and in doing so, they raised around £14,000.

The local shop and post office continue to operate and are now housed in the memorial hall. The hall itself was another community project which begun in the early 1930’s. Funded predominantly through community donations, it was designed to honour those who fought in World War One.

Just outside the village, the local church, St Michael and All Angels, hosts a selection of social events and services. It maintains a strong link with the village primary school, and is a meeting spot for the St Michaels Club.

Also, outside of the village sits Middleton Lodge, a Georgian mansion built in a Palladian architectural style during 1770-1780. It is set within 200 across beautifully picturesque countryside and can be hired out for weddings and other special occasions.

Information about the local residents

The most recent census (2011) states that the village had a population of 581, with 63.3% of locals aged 16-74 recorded as being economically active. Only 10 of those residents were registered as unemployed.

Looking at the village itself and the wider district of Richmond, the media age of the locals stands at 40, which is higher than the average of England (39).

Nearby schools

The only school in the village is aptly named the Middleton Tyas Church of England School. It was recently inspected by Ofsted in 2014 and received a “good” rating.

There’s been a growing demand for places in the school and, as such, the village received a purpose-built facility to better cater to the demand. The school now houses a library, 6 classrooms and a new hall. There’s also a large playing field and playground, plus an area that can accommodate both tennis and 5-a-side football matches.

Getting around

One mile outside the village is Scotch Corner, a transport junction for the A1 & A66. This important link provides commuters with convenient routes to the North East of England & Scotland (northbound), and routes into the city of London (southbound).

The station closest to the village is Darlington and it is easily reachable via car and, depending on traffic, the commute can take about 15-20 minutes. Alternatively, there is a bus service into Darlington (Max X26 bus) and this journey can take approximately 35 minutes.

This bus service is one of four services that run through Middleton Tyas. These buses call in at Moulton, Richmond, Scotch Corner, Darlington and more.

Local shops

As previously mentioned, the community run a local shop & post office. There’s been a shop/post office in the village for roughly 100 years, and it’s now run on a part-time/voluntary basis by the locals. Here customers can pick up day to day essentials and a wide selection of locally sourced produce, such as meats & fish farmed & caught in Darlington, eggs from Gilling West, honey produced in Richmond and the village itself, plus a fresh selection of fruits and vegetables. 

The village also has a local pub, the Shoulder of Mutton, which offers both locals and visitors alike a warm and friendly atmosphere in which to enjoy a tasty menu influenced by local produce, and a fine collection of wines and real ales to accompany the meal.

For family visiting locals or passing through the village, there’s a Holiday Inn and a Travelodge conveniently located on the Scotch Corner.
