Bishop Burton Village Hall, Cold Harbour View, Bishop Burton, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 8QJ
The church at Bishop Burton may have been founded in the 700s, for there are legendary connections with St John of Beverley. Take a tour with an expert around this church of many centuries, with a close link to the history of the beautiful village.
A tour of All Saints' Church Bishop Burton reveals a fascinating miscellany of monuments, effigies, stained glass windows and fine carvings. While a church on the site is believed to date from the 8th century, the present building has its origins in the time when the Minster was constructed in Beverley. Since then it has been renovated and altered several times. Join Bryn Jones to see that each century has its own treasures, many of which are the product of the master craftsmen of the time, including a bust of John Wesley and an alabaster chest tomb. Set on the pilgrim route from Beverley to York, the church has a story that follows closely that of the village as ownership of the estate and the patronage of the church moved from the senior clerics of York to the Gee and Watt families until late in the 20th century.
