Cottingham intro.The village of Cottingham in the Yorkshire Dales claims to be England's biggest village due to its population of over 17,000, although others dispute its claim. Founded in the 5th century, the settlement dates to the 12th century according to the earliest written record of it, with the ramparts of Baynard Castle still seen in Northgate Gardens. The village's huge 13th century Gothic parish church has a mainly Victorian interior holding 14th century tombs with original brasses, and the two Victorian high streets are lined with attractive shops and homes. Cottingham is well-supplied with ancient inns and pubs, several of which serve as charming Cottingham hotels. Local traditional and modern music is celebrated annually at Cottingham Springboard Festival, attracting both visitors and residents, and providing a showcase for local performers. The region is an ever-popular visitor destination for its natural beauty and long history, with the village a good base for exploring the nearby coast and moors.
