The village is famous for the White Horse of Kilburn (cut into the side of Sutton Bank overlooking the village) and also Robert Thompson, the craftsman who was known from his carved mouse trademark (pictured above) as the "Mouseman of Kilburn". Examples of his work in Yorkshire include the oak pews at Hubberholme Church in the Yorkshire Dales.
