The Churches of Britain and Ireland
|Great Ayton, North Yorkshire
All Saints. A 12th century church, well worth a visit, though opening times are restricted and should be checked beforehand. This was the parish church before Christ Church was built in the 19th century. Interior view. NZ 5562 1083. Both © Steve Bulman. Another interior view, © Kenneth Paver. Two more views of the interior - 1, 2, a Norman doorway, the chancel and the font, all © Chris Stafford (2015). Link. Grade I listed. A headstone in teh churchyard is listed separately as grade II.
Former chapel on High Street. NZ 5611 1076. © Steve Bulman. Janet Gimber has advised that this was Wesleyan Methodist (this is supported by the 25" O.S. map of 1891-1914 , though its Genuki entry says it was Primitive Methodist). It was superseded by the then new Methodist Chapel between 1919 and 1928. The building behind the modern extension of the Methodist Chapel (above) may be that building.
