Intersting facts about Malton

In 1138, Malton was, it is said, burned down by the Archbishop of York in order to flush out the Scots occupying it at the time. Subsequent to the rebuilding, it became known as ‘New Malton’ and this is its correct designation today. This also provides a clear distinction from ‘Old Malton’ just about one mile away.
