St Hilda's at Ellerburn
St Hilda's at Ellerburn
This small church shows signs of Norman or earlier elements. A minster church of the Celtic mission from Whitby, St Hilda's would originally have been a wooden building with stone churchyard crosses. Dating from c.1150, the present stone church reveals the remains of these 8th and 9th century crosses built into its walls.

St Hilda's church in Ellerburn is one of Yorkshire's most significant sites for bats. It is home to four of the county's eight bat species the whiskered bat, the pipistrelle, the brown long-eared bat and Natterer's bat.
