St Agatha's is beautifully located by the ruins of the abbey with the River Swale on this occasion roaring nearby. There is something ephemeral about a place where people have gathered and worshipped for over 1000 years. Inside the church is an oasis of calm...More

This church is renowned for it's restored wall paintings which are a gem. Tea and coffee is also on hand for which they ask a small donation. The snowdrops were all out in the churchyard and the sun was shining. What more could you ask...More

Visited St Agatha's during the last week of October 2017. The church stands beside the ruins of Easby Abbey and claims to be older than the Abbey. At first this church seems less than remarkable, but on closer inspection it is quite intriguing. There are...More

Wonderfully kept church. Nice memorials to First & Second World War. I was surprised so many men were lost from such a small community. Even contains an original burial cross for 2nd Lieut Robert Percy Pulleine age 19.

So tranquil in idyllic scenery. Beautiful architecture. Amazing walk in autumn woodland to reach church near the river

A lovely church in a very pretty riverside setting, next door to the ruined Easby Abbey. It is a very peaceful place with rare and magnificent medieval wall paintings. Well worth a visit.

Some interesting frescos. I love looking at churches. Explore the graveyard too. The church does not have the best stained glass but was worth popping into.
