St. Mary's Church, Appleton Wiske

St. Mary's Church, Appleton Wiske
The Church of St Mary, Appleton Wiske, sits in an open plot of land behind buildings at the south-west corner of the village, between Front Street and Baker Street. The village itself lies about fifteen kilometres (ten miles) to the north of Northallerton. The parish marks the north-eastern limit of the diocese and the path of a Roman road runs close to the western side of the village. The first reference to the church comes from 1299 when Edward I heard Mass here.
The small Norman structure consists of nave, chancel, and porch, plus a single bell in the bell cote above the west end. By 1586 the church, or more accurately the chapel, was known as the Chapel of St Mary Magdalen in Appleton. In the nineteenth century it was referred to as a chapel of ease, probably to All Saints Northallerton. Little exterior restoration work seems to have been undertaken apart from the rebuilding or creation of the porch which is rather mismatched. [The History Files]
