St Nicholas Church, Thorne
St Nicholas Church, Thorne
Until the 14th century the parish church serving Thorne was across a stretch of water at nearby Hatfield. In 1326 a funeral party was lost when a boat capsized, casting the corpse and several mourners into the water. About a dozen bodies were recovered some days later and as a result of the tragedy the Abbot of St. Mary's in York agreed to the Norman church at Thorne being rebuilt and made a parish church so that the dead could be buried nearby.
