About the church


Built in 1894/5 the current building replaced the previous Saxon or early Norman construction. Killinghall stone with Whitby stone dressing is used in the Gothic style of architecture. Internally, suitable stone from the old church has been used. The two Norman doorways from the old church, one from the congregation and one for the priest, were preserved and refitted in the new church. The interior underside of the roof is of oak, barrel vaulted with carved bosses and carved figures. The Architects were Messres. Domaine and Brierley of York. With accomodation for 120 congregation the church is a grade II listed building and had a major maintenance and refurbisment programme undertaken in 1998.
