Description:
Eryholme is a village and civil parish in the district of Richmondshire in North Yorkshire, England.

The village is situated on the south bank of the River Tees opposite Hurworth, four and a half miles south east of Darlington.

In this part of the Tees valley the river forms many loops called 'holmes'. The word 'holm' is of Viking origin and means "island formed by a river". Eryholme's name is, however, a corruption of its original name 'Erghum'. This name means shieling - a shelter for livestock, which comes from the Old Irish word word 'airgh'. This word was introduced into Yorkshire place names by Norwegian Vikings who had lived in Ireland for a number of generations and adopted many Irish words.

The Church of St. Mary in Eryholme is a plain stone building; registers there date from 1565.There was a Victorian era brick and tile works in Eryholme.
