2. Entering 'new' Malton from the north - 'old' Malton
Either by road via the B1257 or the footpath along by the River Derwent from Old Norton's St Mary's Priory Church
Just before you leave the banks of the River Derwent you see the remains of the pillars of a railway bridge that carried a rural line from Hovingham and Slingsby to Driffield that bi-passed Malton Station itself.
In walking to 'New' Malton town you now head up through Orchard Fields and Lady Spring Wood.
Here you find the site of the Roman fort of Derventio - right before you in the lower part of the picture - not a lot to see I'm afraid - but there are some good displays of Roman life in the museum in Malton.
You can see the outline of the earthworks of the Roman Fort of Derventio.
Looking along the defensive bank that runs from NW to SE in direction.

The front wall and old (sealed) gateway (Old Maltongate) of the now Old Malton Lodge Hotel. The walls look rather old and eroded - and apparently the remains of the gatehouse for the original Malton Castle which stood between the present hotel and the River Derwent. The castle was destroyed about 1600 and a new Jacobean mansion built 1604-1608. Most of this mansion was then destroyed in 1675 due to a family dispute leaving the old gateway and the large lodge, which was extensively rebuilt in the 19th century?
The magnificent architecture of the Old Malton Lodge Hotel set in attractive gardens (originally built as a Jacobean mansion 1604-1608).
The splendid private house opposite the Old Lodge Hotel. Age and origin??
The fine looking Leonard House - with simple clean architectural lines and we are now more or less in Malton 'New' Town on Old Malton Road.
