The village was until recent years a mainly farming community. Although it still retains links with the land through families who have lived here for generations it has welcomed newcomers and has now become a popular commuter village.
Dominating the area is the Church, standing on rising ground on the main road through the village, and across from the church, Monk Fryston Hall, a fine hotel set in wooded parkland, the entrance to which is from the village square. Also situated in the square is a good example of a thatched cottage.
There are two fine hostelries, both situated on the main road, the "Blue Bell" and the "Crown". Although accommodation is limited to Monk Fryston Hall, a number of hotels and guest houses are located in the vicinity.
