The main A1 road ran through the village until the 1980s when a bypass road was built.

We have a primary school with around 50 pupils, a really well stocked village shop. The local branch of the RBS closed in October 2015 and was replaced by the mobile branch which visits twice a week. The last pub in the village (the Black Bull) closed a few years ago but reopened in July 2015 as the Hemelvaart Bier Cafe. There are quite a few businesses based in the village which you can find out more about here.

Within a mile of the village we have the beautiful Ayton Castle, built in the 1850s in the Scottish Baronial style in red sandstone.
