Patrick Brompton is a village in the Richmondshire District of North Yorkshire. It is situated approximately four miles from Bedale on the A684. The village was first mentioned in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086.
The village is ideally situated to access both Wensleydale and Swaledale, two of Yorkshire's most attractive dales.

Sunflowers to brighten up the village!
Many thanks to those who planted sunflowers. Although the weather played havoc with the condition of the Sunflowers in recent days, the competition judging still took place on Bank Holiday Monday. Many thanks to Jean Morley and Sheila Minto for coming over from Kirby Fleetham to judge the three categories. The Tallest was, not surprisingly, grown by Dave and Jane Tyler at a height of 2.76 metres. They also won the Largest Seed Head at 30cm. Wendy Shepherd won the Best Dressed Sunflower. Well done to all. Thankyou to the village Community Events Committee for organising and thanks to Hackforth Village Hall committee for inviting our village to take part as well.
