Downton is a small, fictional village in north Yorkshire, England. It contains a post office, a village shop, two public houses, the Grantham Arms and The Dog and Duck, and a railway station. There is also a cottage hospital, the main doctor of which is Dr. Richard Clarkson. There is also a large church, Church of St. Michael of All Angels, with a cemetery beside it.
The village is located between the towns of Ripon and Thirsk. A signpost in Downton village shows that Thirsk is 6 miles in one direction, while Ripon is 9 miles in almost the exact opposite direction.
