The Church of St. Mary off Selby Road

The Church of St. Mary off Selby Road
2000. View of the Church of St. Mary at Whitkirk. A church was recorded in this vicinity in the Domesday Survey of 1086 and it is likely that the site has remained unchanged. The present building was erected in 1448-9, but underwent a substantial restoration in 1856. During the Middle Ages, the Knights Templars and Knights Hospitallers were patrons of the advowson of the vicarage. This right passed to the Master, Fellows and Scholars of Trinity College, Cambridge, and eventually, in 1898 to the Meynell Trustees. This view is from the north side of the church and shows the western tower with a leaded and slated medieval spire.

Both my sons were christened in this beautiful medieval church in 1977 and 1979. We were living at Temple Avenue,Temple Newsham, at that time, shortly after we moved up to Durham where we currently remain. Lovely to see it again .
