St. John the Baptist's Church, Hessay

St. John the Baptist's Church, Hessay
The Church of St John the Baptist, Hessay, occupies an open plot on the western side of New Road, midway between the village to the south and the railway line to the north. Within the parish of Moor Monkton in 1821, the village was given to St Mary's Abbey in York by Osbern de Archis, probably in the twelfth or thirteenth century, and remained in their possession until the Dissolution under Henry VIII. [The History Files]

It looks like the church was built around 1900 as it doesn't appear on Ordnance Survey maps up to 1894, but is there on maps from 1910 onwards. [John Nottingham]
