A quiet and peaceful church with the benefit of being able to make a cuppa as tea, coffee and an electric kettle were available. We liked the trust given to pay for anything bought.

Some of the best medieval wall paintings I've ever seen. Wonderful.This little gem of a church sits cheek by jowl with Easby Abbey, and the walk along the disused railway track from Richmond is delightful.

This pleasant Church is set in the grounds of Easby Abbey and well worth a visit. It displays artistic paintings on the walls dating back to the 13th century. Can be accessed by foot along the River Swale from Richmond, or by car. Small car...More

Attractive old church, with wonderfully preserved murals - a lovely Adam and Eve on one wall, and a very moving crucifixion, entombment and resurrection on the other. Remains of labours of the months in the window arches. Well worth a visit.

Wow. This lovely church, together with its cemetery, abuts the grounds of Easby Abbey. Lovely but Unassuming from the outside, it contains stunning medieval wallpaintings on either side of its altar. Highly recommend!

St Agatha's is a lovely small church standing next to Easby Abbey. There is a small car park or you can walk from Richmond on a fine day. The wall paintings are the best we have seen and the stained glass windows are a delight...More

Standing next to the ruined abbey, and even older, St Agatha's church is a wonder and a joy. It has alfresco paintings on the wall, very rare as most were destroyed by Henry VIII, and those that survived went by Cromwell's hand.
