Church of St Giles, Village Street, Lockton, Ryedale - Ryedale

Medieval church at the centre of a moorland village. Generally well maintained, but significant repair needed to the tower. The drainage needs to be overhauled. An unsuccessful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship Scheme was made in 2017.
