Church of St Peter, Bridge Street, Brafferton - Hambleton

An unusual church, the Perpendicular east end and tower separated by an aisleless nave of 1826 to 1831 by JB Pritchett. The tower pointing is poor and the belfry windows are deteriorating. The sandstone of the nave walls is extensively face-bedded and is eroding. The chancel parapets are decaying. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship is supporting repair, which started in 2018.
