Bursting with history, Leyburn has many intriguing buildings.The school, built in 1862, has a bell from 1871 and a shingle  roof play shed. There is also the pound yard, Henry Kirby’s grave and the cemetry. A former butchers shop is now an art gallery while St Mathew’s catholic church and St Augustine’s Anglican church remain active. Once a bustle gold feild, their are still places where panning will turn up some colour.
