Threshfield was founded by the Angles.
Before 1066 The Domesday Book shows that the Viking Gamel Bern was the landowner of here and Grassington, farming 840 acres of ploughland.
The Norman conquest of England made it part of the lands of Gilbert Tison. But by 1118 Tison had suffered a demotion and his lands returned to the king then given to the honours of Percy, Ramilly, Fitz John and d’Aubigny
The Old Hall, a Georgian inn which takes its name from the 14th century hall at the rear, was built by monks and reputedly the oldest inhabited building in Wharfedale. In the 16th century, Threshfield was part of a huge deer park.
On pre-19th century maps, Threshfield’s name is sometimes inaccurately rendered as Rashby
