SD9797 : Church ruin, Isles

taken 12 years ago, near to Crackpot, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Church ruin, Isles
Church ruin, Isles
At first glance this looks like the ruined extension of a typical dales barn, but closer inspection reveals its original use as a church. A tablet on the wall gives the information that this was the first independent church in Swaledale and was founded by Philip Lord Wharton in 1690.
The oddest feature of the building is the site, which is on a steep hillside well above the road, and approached by narrow paths.
