St. Mary's Church, Askham Richard
|St Mary's Church, Askham Richard, is on the eastern side of Jackson's Walk, off Main Street. The first record of a church here dates to 1086, probably a wooden Saxon building. The present single cell church is Norman, built in rubble masonry, and it was given to Nun Monkton Priory in the 1130s. It was partly rebuilt in 1887 (or 1878-1879), when chancel arch, vestry and porch were added. Askham Richard Wesleyan Methodist Church was nearby in 1848, but has since gone. [The History Files]|
