St John of Beverley


Built in 1799 to replace the chapel used as the parish church in the East tower of Wressle Castle which had been gutted by fire in 1796. It was built on the site of the medieval church which was said to have been destroyed during the English Civil War by Parliamentarians. The church is built of brick, laid in English-garden-wall bond, with ashlar plinth and dressings with a Westmorland-slate roof. It has a thin tower with prominent stone battlements and round-arched belfry openings. The round-arched windows in the church were Gothicized in 1873.

The grant will enable the church to carry out repairs to the lead roof on the tower
