PARISH CHURCH OF ALL SAINTS

GV I

The chancel and transepts of rubble stone are the earliest parts; they
now have tall "Perpendicular" windows but the chancel also has two Norman
windows, and traces of another one destroyed by the insertion of "Perpendicular"
window in east end. Spacious nave with eastern window above the chancel.
Aisles of C14 to C15 with embattled parapets and Perpendicular windows.
Western tower probably C14 or C15, with embattled parapet and small lead-covered
wooden spire, the South porch is typical C18. On the North side are
parts of a Norman doorway, probably not in original position. Inside
West end of North aisle are shafts of three Saxon crosses and a massive
mediaeval grave slab with Gothic lettering. The oak pulpit is of typical
Georgian work. There are many monuments to members of important local
families, the most interesting one being an alter tomb with recumbent
effigies of grandparents of Thomas, Lord Fairfax, the commander of the
Parliamentary army in the Civil War. Cl9 railings to Church Lane, standards
with arrow heads.

Parish Church of All Saints and Memorial to victims of Bramhope Tunnel
Disaster form a group with Nos 1 and 2 Church Lane.
