Rillington is a village now in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England approximately 3 miles east of Malton and south-west of Scarborough. It is situated on the banks of the River Derwent, which used to be navigable for small vessels from here to the River Humber.
Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Rillington was located in Norton Rural District. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Buckrose Wapentake.
In the 1800s and earlier, the parish was known as Rillington with Scampston or Rillington cum Scampston. Scampston is a hamlet and chapelry within the ecclesiastical parish.
