St. Eloy's Church, Great Smeaton

St. Eloy's Church, Great Smeaton
The Church of St Eloy, Great Smeaton, is on the northern side of the A167 road, virtually opposite the primary school building. The earliest parts of the church are fourteenth century, including the nave arcade. The building was thoroughly renovated in 1863, and it seems only then to have been dedicated to St Eloy, the patron saint of smiths. The dedication is common in France, but this may be its only use in England. The original dedication (if there was one) is unknown. [The History Files]
