Skiplam is not found in Wikipedia and its location had to be found on Google Earth. It is to the south of Bransdale and Farndale, and to the north of Kirkbymoorside.

A Vision of Britain through Timeprovides the following description from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870-72):

"SKIPLAM, a township in Kirkdale parish, [North Riding of] Yorkshire; 4 miles NE of Helmsley. Acres, 2,760. Real property, with Bransdale, £1,674. Population of [Skiplam] alone, 87. Houses: 8."

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Skiplam was part of Kirkbymoorside Rural District. Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Kirkdale in the Rydale Wapentake.
