St. Clement's Church, York
|St Clements Clementhorpe is situated inside the fork of Scarcroft Road and Nunthorpe Road. This area of the city was known as Clementhorpe in 1070, indicating that the church already existed here. In 1130 it certainly existed, as an integral part of the Benedictine Nunnery of St Clement founded by Archbishop Thurstan. The church became parochial at the Dissolution, but was allowed to become a ruin after about 1590. The present church was built in 1872-1874. [The History Files]|
