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:

    It is not linen you’re wearing out
    But human creatures’ lives!
    In poverty, hunger, and dirt,
    Sewing at once, with a double thread,
    A Shroud as well as a Shirt.
    —Thomas Hood (1799–1845)
