St Oswald's Church

A peaceful spot in a modern world

Though beset by canal, railway, cooling towers and industrial estate, St Oswald's, in its spacious and peaceful churchyard, still has great charm and interest. Saxon work is evident although the church is mainly Norman.

It has thirteenth-century arcades, a west window from the early fourteenth century and, finest of all, a sixteenth-century chapel with a notable monument to William Rokeby, once a rector at St Oswald's.

There are also some other memorials and some interesting glass and two beautifully carved screens.It is the aim of the Friends of St Oswald's to open the church for public use at weekends in spring and summer. Why not join the friends to help us to do this and more.

The church is no longer used for religious ceremonies such as weddings and christenings. For use of the church for other events please see details on the Events page.
