St. Wilfrid's Roman Catholic Church, York
|St Wilfrid's Roman Catholic Church is on the northern side of Duncombe Place, overlooking Blake Street within sight of the Minster. Opened in 1864, it was dedicated with the name of the former Anglican church in York which was closed in 1548. St Wilfrid's parish was revived by Roman Catholics in 1742 with the founding of the Little Blake Street Mission. A public chapel opened in 1760 and continued until 1802 when another chapel was built on the present site and used until 1864. [The History Files]|
