The parish of Raskelf has a population of approximately 510 people. It is situated in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire, England. It lies just off the A19 and is two and a half miles north-west of Easingwold.

The parish church St Mary’s is the only church in Yorkshire to have a wooden tower and dates from medieval times. Pictures of the church and tower can be found in the gallery.

For accommodation there is a pub in Raskelf, the Old Black Bull  The village also has a pound or pinfold where stray animals were kept by the Pinder or Pinman until their owners retrieved them. This pinfold dates from the 18th century. It was restored by the Parish Council in 1971.
