Londonderry, North Yorkshire

Londonderry is a village near the Yorkshire Dales, England situated south-east of Bedale, almost on the A1 road. It is part of the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire and is in the historic North Riding of Yorkshire.
It is named after the Marquesses of Londonderry, who took their name from County Londonderry, now in Northern Ireland, and were colliery owners in this area of England.
Londonderry Lodge was a former Transport Café in the village. The café is now closed, having served the traffic on the A1 road for 100 years. The building has been listed as Grade II since 1966. With the upgrading of the A1 to A1 standard, the junction with the A1 was diverted away from Londonderry. As a consequence of this, traffic has been lost from the hamlet, lorry traffic especially so. A noted refuelling service station have moved their business from Londonderry to Leeming Bar because of this traffic shift.
