In 1935, the civil parishes of Raisthorpe and Burdale, Wharram le Street, and Wharram Percy were merged into the single civil parish of Wharram.

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Wharram was located in Norton Rural District. Historically, there were two ecclesiastical parishes of Wharram Percy and Wharram le Street in the Buckrose Wapentake.

It would appear that since the re-organization, the name of the parish has reverted to Wharram-le-Street. (source: Wikipedia)
