Sacred Heart Church was built 1850-52 to the designs of the Architect J. A. Hansom of York, famed for his design of the 'Hansom Cab'. The church is Grade II listed and lies within a conservation area. The church is constructed in white brick with ashlar dressings and slate roof. Internally, the side altar has an intricately carved reredos. This altar started life in the original chapel at Everingham Hall and is considerably older than the Sacred Heart Church.
