Skelton is a rural village with a picturesque historic green, overlooked by the grade I listed Church of St Giles. Historically the area formed part of the ancient Forest of Galtres and remnants can still be found in the Moorlands Nature Reserve at the eastern edge of the parish. The western boundary is formed by the river Ouse and Hurn's Gutter. Despite the village's growth over the past seventy years, with a succession of sympathetic developments, it remains characterised by its many open spaces.
