Wikipedia relates the story of the Battle of Old Byland of 1322 but does not mention that the place still exists. Today it is a farming community not far from Rievaulx Abbey.
Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Old Byland was part of Helmsley Rural District. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Birdforth Wapentake.
