St Lambert's Church, Burneston

St Lambert's Church, Burneston
The Church of St Lambert, Burneston, lies at the south-east corner of Bedale Road and Church Wind. The church is the only one in Britain to be dedicated solely to St Lambert, who lived around AD 635-705, and became bishop of Maastricht during a period of English conversion of the Germanics and Frisians. The church was founded in the thirteenth century, when an aisless nave was built. The chancel and chancel arch were added in the fourteenth century.
In the fifteenth century the church was rebuilt, with aisles being added to the nave and the two stage tower with spire being added. The chancel arch may have been widened at the same time, while the south porch dates from a period not long afterwards. The font at the back of the church bears the date 1662, while the building itself is now Grade I listed. Most of the seating dates from 1627, with carved upper panels and turned finials at each end.
