Roecliffe, St Mary's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Unusual barrel-vaulted roof
The oak pews are arranged around the walls in a style more usually seen in college chapels. There is a Jacobean pulpit, brought here from Holy Trinity church in Hull, but much of the interior is Victorian aside from the vestry door. This is 15th century, and was again brought from an outside church - this time from York Minster.
Despite the Victorian fabric, there are some interesting examples of medieval woodwork, but no one is quite sure where they came from or why they ended up here.
St Mary's is no longer used for regular worship and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust.
