Grindale, St Nicholas' Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Norman font
The pulpit is lovely Victorian work, as is the stone reredos behind the altar. One interesting feature is that the church is oriented the 'wrong way', that is, with the altar towards the west rather than the traditional east.
The first historical record of a church at Grindale comes from the year 1153 when a curate named Serls resigned his Prebendary post for unknown reasons. Most of the early curates of St Nicholas's were supplied by the nearby Priory.
The medieval church was almost completely rebuilt in 1874 under the patronage of the Lloyd Greames family of Sewerby.
