The former Prime Minister David Cameron has been appointed Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead, which is in Scarborough.
It is a paid post, traditionally awarded to former MPs upon their resignation.
The Manor of Northstead once consisted of medieval manor house surrounded by farms and fields.
The estate has since been redeveloped, forming part of the Barrowcliff area of Scarborough.
The stewardship is a nominal role, with no official responsibility.
