Hickleton is a village and parish in the West Riding of Yorkshire. It had a population of 291,[1] which had reduced slightly to 274 at the 2011 Census.[2]

There are records of Hickleton’s history dating back to Saxon times, although some consider the settlement has Roman roots.[3]

More recently, it was the "estate village" of Hickleton Hall, formerly the home of the Earls of Halifax but now a Sue Ryder Care Home.

Hickleton's parish church, St Wilfrid's is mainly of mediæval construction with Norman features, restored in Victorian times by George Frederick Bodley.
