Old church, Birdsall - Ryedale

Ruined church adjacent to country house. C12 chancel arch, C14 arcade, 1601 datestone on tower probably resited, C18 window inserted on west front. Some work required on wall tops but main concern is deterioration of stone on south arcade and impost moulding on Norman chancel arch.
