MUSTON SCARECROW FESTIVAL

MUSTON VILLAGE    (SATNAV - YO14 0ER)

Muston is a village and civil parish in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire.  It has a population of around 320 and is situated on the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail.  Muston is only about 2 miles from the seafront at Filey.

Muston is made up of two words, 'Mus' (moss, marsh or morass) and 'Ton' (town or towne).  There is a derelict windmill on the outskirts of the village, just off the A165.  References to a mill first appear in 1341, the current mill is thought to have been built in 1826 and used until 1932.

ALL SAINTS CHURCH

All Saints Church is a small but beautiful building.  There is reference to a church in Muston as early as 1115 but the building we worship in today is far 'newer'.  The old church was severly damaged in gales in 1863.  An almost new building was completed in 1864 with the addition of the north aisle and the vestry.

 

Thanks to funds raised during an annual church festival that runs concurrent to the Scarecrow Festival, the church today is in excellent condition and worshipped in every sunday.

THE SHIP INN

Right at the centre of our village is The Ship Inn.  A cosy and welcoming place with friendly owners serving good beer and wines and excellent food.
