The church first appears in the historical records in 1150, when it was granted to Bridlington Priory by William FitzNigel. A south aisle was added around 1200, and a north aisle some 50 years later. The Norman piers were later replaced by Early English arches and piers.

Flamborough
Flamborough is a village in the East Riding of Yorkshire. It is situated approximately 4 miles north-east of Bridlington on the prominent coastal feature of Flamborough Head.
The church of St Oswald stands in the village and was designated a Grade II* listed building, maintained by Historic England. The village centre contains a number of shops and public houses. The Old Dog and Duck is at Dog and Duck Square.
In the village are the fragmentary remains of Flamborough Castle, a medieval fortified manor house.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
