Church of the Holy Trinity, Main Street, Rathmell - Craven

Mid-C19 church with chancel and vestry added in 1883. Constructed from slobbered rubble with squared dressings and slate roof. Located in small, isolated hamlet, but maintained in regular use. The roofs are in poor condition, leading to some water ingress. The tower roof is in particularly poor condition. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship has supported the first phase of repair, but further works, to the tower, are required.
