Holy Trinity Church, Stockton on the Forest
| The Church of the Holy Trinity, Stockton on the Forest, can be found on the eastern side of The Village, perhaps thirty metres (yards) north of The Elms. The parish lies to the east of the ancient Forest of Galtres, in which it was once included. The first church to be constructed on this site was medieval, possibly late Norman, but little seems to be known of it. This was destroyed in 1808 when a new church was built, but this version barely lasted the century.|
In 1895 the church was completely rebuilt, in the thirteenth century Gothic style, in white brick with stone dressings, consisting of nave and chancel with a tower on the north-west side surmounted by a slate-covered spire. The tower contains four bells, all cast in 1892. There are numerous eighteenth and nineteenth century tablets to members of the local Agar family, while the church was transferred from the prebendary of Bugthorpe to the archbishop of York in 1840.
