Naburn is a small country village and civil parish in the City of York, North Yorkshire, England. It lies on the eastern side of the River Ouse. It has existed since Saxon times and after the Normans invaded Britain the village land was given to one of William the Conqueror’s standard bearers. Saint Matthew’s Church was built in 1854 by the Victorians.
As many villages these days the amenities are few so the Blacksmiths Arms fills the gap in the local community by providing a small village shop on the premises supplying Organic Vegetables, Milk, Farm Eggs, basic Groceries and fresh Bread.
Like the rest of York, Naburn village was affected by the flooding of 2000 which resulted in several houses being flooded. Thankfully the Pub was largely unaffected with only minor flood damage to the cellar. During this time the community was stranded and access by road was cut off, meaning the village had to rely on provisions being brought in via the cycle track by those residents willing to take this less than conventional route. You will see from the photograph on the website the extent of the flooding, the pub was however, still open and locals made it in most by foot however one did arrive by boat!. After the floods the village was visited by HRH Prince of Wales and he even managed a quick tipple in the local! As the photo in the gallery shows.
