You will find St Mary's Claxby on a back lane with glorious views north across the Wolds towards Nettleton Top.
Medieval in origin, much of what your eye takes in, including the little weathereboarded turret dates from 1749. Inside there is an inscription recording the restoration of the building with funds provided by Queen Ann's Bounty. There was a further restoration in 1889 by Charles Hodgson Fowler and it now looks in need of further work. Pevsner lists the church as redundant, but apparently it isn't.
