Wykeham - Out & About
Wykeham is located on the A170 Scarborough to Pickering road,
about seven miles from Scarborough. The village has the vibrant
feel of a living, working community. Between Wykeham and the nearby
village of Ruston, are many small outlets and attractions including
a clothing shop, a craft and tea shop, an antiques shop and superb
fishing and sports lakes.
