Spaunton is a hamlet and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated near Lastingham and about 5 miles (8 km) north west of Pickering.
Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Spaunton was located in the Kirkbymoorside Rural District. Historically, it was situated in the ecclesiastical parish of Lastingham in the Rydale Wapentake.
Spaunton Moor is a large expanse of moorland stretching north and south from Spaunton--the part north of Lastingham is adjacent to the south of Rosedale and Farndale. Spaunton Moor was the civil parish, while Spaunton is the hamlet. The civil parish was transferred from Pickering Rural District to Kirkbymoorside Rural District in 1934, together with that of Lastinham which was adjacent.
