Skull-and-crossbones surround a Georgian gem

This secluded Georgian church, is set in parkland with views to Skelton Castle. Graves with skull-and-crossbone motifs mingle with wild cherry and garlic in the churchyard.

The church was mostly rebuilt in 1785 and probably two previous churches were sited there. Pulpit, box pews and other furnishings seem to date from the rebuilding, with slightly earlier text boards and some older monuments on a remaining Medieval wall.

The herringbone tooling of the outside stonework gives the church a strong local feel, in contrast to the 'Venetian' east window and the dark rose colouring of the interior.
