By the late SIR STEPHEN GLYNNE, Bart.




Jan. 16th, 1849.-A very large church similar in general arrangement and in style to many others of the district. It is in its external features coarse Third Pointed, but within there is some indication of earlier work. The plan is a spacious nave with aisles, and a chancel not long in proportion, but also with aisles, and a large western tower. stone work of the exterior is rather worn. The clerestory and aisles of the nave are embattled, with some modern pinnacles, and below the parapet is a corbel table which at first sight appears of First Pointed period, but which is probably late and occurs in other instances in this locality. The chancel has a tiled roof of higher pitch than the nave. The tower is massive, with large buttresses and battlement canopied at intervals, and eight small crocketed pinnacles. The belfry windows are double and each of two lights. The tower has a large portion of bare wall without any kind of ornament. On the west side is a doorway with small shafts, and over it a five-light Third Pointed window. The windows are generally rather poor, many are mutilated and have no foliations. Those in the aisles are of three lights, except those at the eastern end, which have four. The east window of the chancel is a very large one of eight lights with three transoms, but very coarse and late. The clerestory on the north side has two-light windows, those on the south are of three. On the north side of the chancel, beyond the aisle, is a vestry. The interior, though devoid of enrichment, would from its grand dimensions have a noble effect, if it were fitted with any attention to ecclesiastical propriety, but it is encumbered with pews and galleries quite to an unparalleled extent. The western part of the nave, including two bays,

is entirely cut off and unoccupied, the huge gallery being placed forward. There are north and south galleries besides, and another most horrible one encroaching literally over the whole chancel. The nave has on each side an arcade of nine pointed arches in all, and is remarkably wide and spacious. The arches are rather narrow and the piers are clustered of four shafts with moulded capitals which may be Middle Pointed, the bases hid by a raised floor. In the western part one arch is wider with a square pier, and one arch is destroyed by the cumbrous gallery. The roof of the nave is nearly flat, panneled with ribs and bosses, with coarse angel figures with shields under the beams. The chancel arch is quite masked by the horrid gallery. It is of two bays with arches to the aisles, and clustered piers not unlike those of the nave. The square capitals, bases, and shaft responds have rather an early look. The roof is of fair pitch and open, with hammer beams, bosses and ornamental cornice, but over the sacrarium it is ceiled. The south-east window beyond the aisle is of five lights. There is daily service at 9 a.m. A large organ. In the west portion of the nave is a large open baptistery. It is be hoped that new internal arrangements may soon be made in a proper style.31


April 20, 1842.-A good church, almost entirely Third Pointed, externally of a plain kind, but with early work, and within consisting of a nave with aisles and clerestory, chancel with aisles, western tower, north and south porches. The east end of the church is on a very steep bank shelving down rapidly to the river Swale. The clerestory is embattled, but not the other parts. The north porch has fine groining, and there is a niche over the door. The tower is supposed to have been built in 1399; it has a battlement, and is divided into different stages by strings. The buttresses are at the angles, the belfry windows large. The windows vary, but are mostly Third Pointed, some set very high, the ground falling very suddenly. There are a few Middle Pointed ones.

31 1864. The chancel has been much improved, the gallery removed, stalls erected for the choir, and the organ

moved to the north aisle of the chancel. The nave is still galleried and with the ugly pews.
