St.Mary's church
St.Mary's church
The earliest documented evidence of a church in Masham is in the Domesday Book of 1086 but the only survival from the Anglo-Saxon period is the base of a much weathered, ninth century round-shafted cross.

The present church is of later and varied dates. The oldest part of the church is the tower, the lower stage of which is of the mid-12th century and its upper stages date from the 13th century. The body of the church underwent considerable rebuilding in the 14th century and the porch was added in the 16th century.

The whole church underwent restoration, and in parts extensive remodelling in the Victorian period after a lightning strike in 1855. The exterior of the building, therefore, has the appearance of a nineteenth century church.

The church is a grade II* listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 325034 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings)
