St Wilfrid's is an ancient Grade I Anglican Church situated in a Conservation Area in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. On permanent display are the remains of Anglo-Scandinavian crosses and tomb covers. After the Norman Conquest the church was rebuilt in stone. In the time of Henry VIII, the church was completely reconstructed in the Perpendicular style and the tower added. In 1612 the church was repaired at the cost of Sir William Craven. In 1858/9 the church was 'restored' by a local architect John Varley; the Victorian style chancel arch was put in and the roof raised by six feet.
The grant will help fund a project to re-roof the north and south side chapels, reline the south clerestory gutter, reset capping stones above and pointing of east gable above chapels/chancel and repair window SII in South Chapel.
