LAST week’s mystery church, photographed by Philip Winstanley, was St Andrew’s at Aysgarth - somewhat out of our area, but a very attractive building and much visited in normal times.

The church, next to the River Ure, was largely rebuilt in 1536 and was also restored in 1866. It consists of a chancel, a nave with aisles and a lady chapel.

There was once a stone head of a Saxon cross which dated back to the 10th century, but it was stolen in 1996, according to the church website, which says it is not sure whether the presence of the cross means that a church did once occupy the site, or it was just a preaching place.

The parish of Aysgarth was once one of the biggest in England, and stretched from the western end of Wensleydale, says the website.

By the beginning of the 17th century, four new parishes had been created, leaving Aysgarth to cover Carperby, Thornton Rust, Bishopdale, Thoralby, Newbiggin and West Burton.

Between 1864 and 1866 the church was completely rebuilt with proper foundations as that restored in the reign of Henry VIII was in such poor condition. The lower part of the tower is all that remains of the 16th century church. All the stained glass windows were installed after 1866.

The church website says outside at the east end of the church there is an upside down horn. It is believed this is from an old gravestone that was once on the floor of the church before the 19th century restoration, and would probably have commemorated a medieval horn blower in the forest of Wensleydale.

This week’s building, not in our patch, is very striking and a very famous landmark, where is it? suggestions by 8am on Monday to
