Fountains Abbey and some churches

I have a few churches still to do in North Yorkshire and I knew that one of the churches was open today so off I headed...

En route I came to the town of Sherburn-in-Elmet which has a church on my list and which was closed last time I was there. I had emailed them to find out if it might be open but had no response I was tempted to carry on but the church was in view so I thought what the hell and .... IT WAS OPEN!!

858 All Saints, Sherburn-in-Elmet










859 St Mary, Birkin

I knew this would be open as they had responded to my contact and the church was open as they using it as a cafe. I strongly approve of this, churches shouldn't be locked and only used on Sundays.










One last  one

Great post Pete - so enjoyed it. All the churches are superb and I especially liked the tympanum in the first :) Fountains Abbey and those gardens looks fantastic - still annoyed we missed it when in the area :) Thanks so much for sharing.
