High Ellington is a village in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England, about 5 miles south-west of Bedale. On the opposite hill, on the other side of the A610 road, lies the smaller village of Low Ellington. High Ellington is the largest settlement in the civil parish of Ellington High and Low (also known simply as Ellington), which also includes Low Ellington and the scattered settlement of Sutton (which includes High Sutton, Low Sutton, Sutton Penn and Sutton Grange).
Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, High and Low Ellington were located in Masham Rural District. Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Masham in the Hang East Wapentake.
At the time of the Domesday Book it was in the possession of Count Alan of Brittany. It became a civil parish in 1866, then known as Ellingtons. In 1886 Sutton was transferred to the parish from Healey with Sutton.
