Church of St Cuthbert, Pateley Bridge
This is one of the 'Commissioners Churches' (Wikipedia LinkExternal link ) of the early 19th century.

It was built in 1827 to replace the Church of St Mary which was too small for the increasing population of the town and in a poor state.

The church consists of a single space, roughly square, with a small extension enclosing the sanctuary at the east end, and a west tower with flanking porches.

The style is late Georgian Gothic revival, with all the windows having simple intersecting tracery.

There appears to have been a gallery at the west end, but this area has been modified to create a foyer and meeting rooms.

The organ, by Harrison and Harrison, is in the south east corner of the nave.

The one older item in the church is the royal coat of arms, dated 1778 and presumably transferred from the old church.

The church is Listed Grade II.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
