HISTORY
Built in 1850, and thought to have been designed by the ecclesiastical architect William Butterfield, Danby Vicarage is a handsome Victorian period property of squared sandstone under a slated roof in the gothic style. The first occupant was Canon JC Atkinson, a celebrated churchman, historian and naturalist; and author of 'Forty years in a moorland parish' as well as other works on local antiquarian themes. On the front of the building, the property bears the armorial crest of Viscount Downe, a major landowner of much property in the parish which included his shooting lodge - Danby Lodge - and who is also understood to have funded the re-construction of the local St Hilda's Church in the dale in 1948. The property is grade II listed.
