Learn about the medieval churches of North Yorkshire and how to photograph them.

* Please note this is a photography tour and you will need to provide your own camera or smart phone camera for this tour. 

Our first stop will be St Mary’s Church, South Cowton. This isolated church dates to the 1450s. The interior contains three alabaster effigies as well as medieval woodwork in both the nave and chancel that has remarkably survived.  

Next we will explore the Church of St John the Baptist, Stanwick. This medieval church is situated in an ancient sacred landscape indicated by the wonderful remains of Anglo-Saxon carved stones re-used in its walls.

The third visit will be Holy Trinity Church, Wensley. 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 and contains some fine examples of medieval wallpaintings.

Finally we will visit Holy Trinity Church, Coverham. This attractive stone church is of thirteenth-century origin and has a calm, light interior nearby to the few remains of Coverham Abbey.
