Hood Grange

Hood Grange is a hamlet and civil parish in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire, England. It is located near Thirsk at the foot of Sutton Bank, south of the larger village of Sutton-under-Whitestonecliffe. It is notable for consisting of only a single household after its population decreased rapidly in the late 19th century. Hood Grange has existed as a civil parish since 1866, prior to which the area was part of Kilburn.

Famous quotes containing the word hood:

    In the dull December light,
    And work—work—work,
    When the weather is warm and bright—
    While underneath the eaves
    The brooding swallows cling
    As if to show me their sunny backs
    And twit me with the spring.
    —Thomas Hood (1799–1845)
