Organs, Church of the Holy Rood, Ossington
There is a single manual Casson Positive organ with 9 stops, which can be hand pumped, but is electric blown.
There is also a barrel organ above and behind the Casson, by Robson of circa 1830, restored in 2005. It has 3 stops and shares the blower from the Casson.
Church of the Holy Rood, Ossington
A typical "estate" church, built for the convenience of the owner of Ossington Hall, rather than the village. It was built between 1782 and 1785 as a replacement for an earlier church to the design of John Carr of York, and remains little altered from its original state.

Originally there was a mausoleum of the Denison family attached to the east end, but this became unstable and was demolished in 1838, the east wall of the church remaining blank. A vestry was added in the 19th century.

The church remains a fine example of a Georgian period church. Listed Grade I.

The churchyard contains the graves of many of the Denison family who owned Ossington Hall, as well as a fine Grade II* listed sundial. The perimeter wall of the churchyard is also Listed Grade II.
