All Saints' Church, Helmsley
All Saints' Church, Helmsley
The Church of All Saints at Helmsley is a Grade II* Listed Building (LinkExternal link ).

According to the 19th century wall-paintings in the north aisle of the church, a Christian church has existed in Helmsley since AD 200; There was certainly one on this site by the time of the Norman Conquest. (There's a 10th century hog-back tombstone in the porch and an entry in the Domesday Book of 1086.)

The present building's chancel arch, one of the largest in Yorkshire, dates from the 12th century (as does its counterpart over the entrance). Otherwise the handsome present day building is largely the result of major restoration in Victorian times, with the stained glass as well as the murals from this period too.
