Kirkdale is the name of several places in the United Kingdom:
- Kirkdale, Merseyside, an area of Liverpool, England
- Kirkdale, North Yorkshire, England
- Kirkdale Estate, Galloway, Scotland; featured in the book The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan
- Kirkdale School, Sydenham, London, England
- A Vision of Britain through Time provides this excerpt from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72 which better describes the village's location:
- "KIRKDALE, a parish in Helmsley district, N. R. Yorkshire; averagely on the river Bran, 1¾ mile SW of Kirkby-Moorside, and 8 W by N of Pickering r. station. It contains the townships of Bransdale-West-Side, Skiplam, Muscoates, Welburn, Wombleton, and Nawton; the last of which has a post office under York. Acres, 12,554. Real property, £7,866. Pop., 1,043. Houses, 211. The property is divided among a few. The Bran disappears in a limestone tunnel near the church, but reappears before reaching the Dove." (This description is extended on another page, but mostly contains detail found in other reference listed here.)
Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Kirkdale was located within Kirkbymoorside Rural District, but it was not a civil parish. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Rydale Wapentake.
