Ancient Village of the Hills
Many of the villages of our district represent settlements of far-distant days and preserve fragments of the old Norse language which was spoken by some of our ancestors. One such is Netherthong. A "thong" was a settlement on a tongue of land, a term which survives locally, also, in Upperthong and Thongsbridge. Netherthong today is a quiet village of the hills and is typical of this part of the West Riding. It once governed itself through its own Local Board.
