A picture postcard church set in a picture postcard village with access on foot from the B1253 next to Sledmere House. Ample free parking nearby.

This is the first of the 19 Sykes churches chiefly on the Yorkshire Wolds, rebuilt or restored by Sir Tatton Sykes 4Bt and the 5th Baronet of the same name, between 1856 & 1913.
