St Oswald's Church, Kirk Sandall, South Yorkshire
- What's nearby
A peaceful spot in a modern world
Though beset by canal, railway, cooling towers and industrial estate, St Oswald's, in its spacious and peaceful churchyard, still has great charm and interest. Saxon work is evident although the church is mainly Norman.
It has thirteenth-century arcades, a west window from the early fourteenth century and, finest of all, a sixteenth-century chapel with a notable monument to William Rokeby, once a rector at St Oswald's.
There are also some other memorials and some interesting glass and two beautifully carved screens.
A medieval treasure saved by George Gilbert Scott
A 12th century church made of “handsome stone” in a tiny parish.
A beautiful interior painted roof
Access to the church is through the vestry door. There are several steep steps down into the church and a step between the entrance porch and the nave.
