The Benefice of Upper Derwent is a group of five Church of England churches (excepted charities) in the Diocese of York and part of the Deanery of Northern Ryedale. Four of our churches (Snainton, Brompton by Sawdon, Wykeham and Hutton Buscel) are scattered along the A170 between Pickering and Scarborough. The fifth at Langdale End is situated at the northern end of the parish of Wykeham not far from Hackness. All are on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. Our Parishes serve the small rural communities of Snainton, Wydale, Brompton, Sawdon, Ruston, Wykeham, North Moor, Hutton Buscel, West Ayton, and Langdale End.

The Upper Derwent Benefice is joined with The Benefice of Thornton Dale, Allerston, Ebberston, Ellerburn and Wilton.
