Pickering is a thriving, historic market town on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and the Vale of Pickering. It is an ideal centre for exploring the locality. Visitor information can be found at http://welcometopickering.co.uk and  http://www.visitryedale.co.uk.

Town Council

There are twelve  councillors who work together to promote the best interests of the community. The Council liaises with the other Ryedale town councils about common interests and with both Ryedale District Council and North Yorkshire County Council on strategic issues. The Council uses a number of methods to keep in touch with residents: its website and facebook page, the quarterly newsletter, the Annual Report and notices on its notice boards. Its office is housed in the Memorial Hall, Pickering’s community hall.

  1. I would like to know how to go about finding out information on a family from pickering who moved to hull their name was pickering this would have been between 1700 and 1900 many thanks

  2. Good afternoon. The Town Council does not hold any register of residents of the town. You could try Beck Isle Museum to see if they can help you, or there is a Ryedale Family History Group who might be worth contacting. Both of these organisations have websites. Thank you, Angela Dawson, Town Clerk, Pickering Town Council.
