Intriguing glimpses of history in a beautiful parish church

Built on eighth-century Saxon foundations, this thirteenth-century church sits on the bank of the river Ure at the eastern end of picturesque Wensleydale.

Inside, its rich history is all around, with good examples of medieval wallpaintings, fine Flemish brasses and a fifteenth-century reliquary, which is claimed to have once held the relics of St Agatha.

Sit and marvel at the sumptuous richness of the Scrope family pew (who were local landowners) and imagine life as the Lord or Lady of nearby Bolton Castle.
