A beautiful interior painted roof

This church was designed by renowned Victorian architect Sir Gilbert Scott in 1856 for Sir Joseph Copley and was intended as a decorated version of the Early English church at Skelton near York. Although some of the external stonework detail has eroded, the fine carving inside by J Birnie Philip is as crisp as ever and there is lovely painted decoration inside the roof.

In the churchyard is the memorial to George Harry Wyatt, awarded the Victoria Cross in 1914 for his act of bravery. He is shown receiving his medal on a photograph inside the church.
