St MARY'S CHURCH, Roecliffe

Set near a beautiful village green, this unusual barrel-vaulted neo-Norman church is appealingly simple inside and out, but has many interesting furnishings including: a Jacobean pulpit, a 17th Century communion table, a series of carved panels in the vestry, a vestry door from York Minster, and an east window designed by Barnett of York.

Address: Roecliffe, York, North Yorkshire YO51 9LY

The church is open Saturdays and Sundays 10.00am to 17.00pm from April to November. Weekday access is available through a local keyholder, information displayed at the church.
