Rylstone

Information on Rylstone, Yorkshire

Rylstone is a small village close to Cracoe and about 6 miles south west of Grassington, beneath Barden Fell and the twin skyline landmarks of Rylstone Cross and Cracoe Pinnacle. The village became famous when members of the Rylstone Women’s Institute posed naked for a calendar to raise money  for Leukaemia research after one of the members husbands, John Baker, died from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1998. The story was made into a film starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters which was shot mainly in nearby Kettlewell but also in Buckden, Burnsall, Coniston, Ilkley, Settle, Linton, Malham, and Skipton.
