Description:
Melmerby is a village and civil parish in the Harrogate district of North Yorkshire, England. Whilst the name is of viking origin, many of the fields in the area have saxon names eg Halikeld.

Until the late 1950s, the village was the site of a major rural railway junction. Situated on the main Harrogate to Northallerton via Ripon railway line (closed 1968), a branch line (closed 1963) ran westwards from Melmerby to the small market town of Masham, famous for brewing. A line (closed 1959) also ran north eastwards linking Melmerby with the East Coast Main Line at Thirsk.

The village is part of the parish of Melmerby and Middleton Quernhow, a small hamlet a quarter of a mile north of the village. The population is approximately 430.

During the war the village was the site a a large munitions store, taking advantage of the railway access.
