The Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, Northallerton
|Sacred Heart Catholic Church stands on the eastern side of Thirsk Road, opposite Racecourse Lane in Northallerton. Until 1871, when a school chapel was established, Catholics in Northallerton had to go to Aiskew or Bedale. The school chapel was dedicated to All Saints by 1889, perhaps in imitation of the parish church itself. By 1905 the dedication had been changed to its current form and by 1909 it had its own priest. The present building was opened on 27 June 1934. [The History Files]
