Aysgarth Church - Acts of Worship

The Interior of St. Andrews Church. It had a lovely feeling to the place as the sunlight illuminated the interior in the different colours and patterns through the stained glass.

The present church was largely rebuilt in 1536 and restored in 1866. The churchyard is said to be the largest in the country at four acres.St. Andrew's Church in Aysgarth once had the stone head of an important 10th century Saxon cross but this was stolen in 1996.

It stil contains some of the fittings saved from Jervaulx Abbey at the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
