Church of St Stephen, High Street, Snainton - Scarborough

The church was rebuilt in 1835 by John Barry of Scarborough and is a simple rectangular building of Tudorish appearance. The roof is in poor condition and water penetration has caused timber decay in the vestry. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship is supporting repair works, which started in 2018.
