Uckerby, North Yorkshire

Uckerby is a hamlet and civil parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. It situated at a crossroads on the road between Scorton and Moulton. Uckerby first appears on record as Ukerby, in 1198.

Both of the minor roads that cross the main road are dead ends.
