|St Mary & St Joseph Catholic Church, Aiskew, stands on the southern side of the A684 main road, in Stanley Terrace. The church was opened in 1878 by the Stapletons, who had remained the local Catholic landlords since the Reformation, when Catholic power over the original parish church of St Gregory Bedale was removed (see below). The earlier Tudor implant of the Digby family, who had 'gone native', had been drawn into local sympathies of anti-Elizabethan rebellion. [The History Files]|
