This is a typical Dales Church with an outstanding roof. Well worth your visit. Sadly TA will not allow my pictures of it.

As we had parked outside the Church during our stay we decided to look inside. It is a lovely village church that is well kept.

Had a look around this village church whilst staying in the village. Lovely location next to the market square. Informative and they even do a children's trail. A quaint Yorkshire village church.

Lovely village church with plenty of history from when Askrigg was the Market town. Great views from outside too.

Very attractive and well maintained listed medieval church with notable timber roof. Very large, in recognition of the relative importance of Askrigg in earlier times.
