Church of St Mary, Church Wynd, Alne - Hambleton

A largely Norman church, although with medieval extensions and insertions. The nave south wall appears to be a Georgian rebuild, although resetting (and jumbling) the fine Norman doorway. The tower is largely of 1766 and has a brick upper stage. The roofs and drainage are in poor repair. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship is supporting repairs, which started in 2018.
