Church of St John the Baptist, Wilberfoss - East Riding of Yorkshire (UA)

Grade I listed parish church with fabric dating to C12. It is thought that the church may once have been the nave of the Priory of St Mary, a Benedictine nunnery founded before 1153 and dissolved in 1539. The chancel roof is in very poor condition. A National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship Repair grant was accepted in 2018 and work to repair the church is underway.
