North Yorkshire, England
Some nice quiet villages in the North York Moors National Park.
Both Lockton village and Levisham villages are good places to start circular walks from
The YHA Youth Hostel at Lockton Village.
Lockton is lovely quiet village on the road down to Levisham off the very busy main A169 Whitby-Pickering Road. The 13th-14th century medieval church of St Giles, Lockton, is worth a visit. It has a short Perpendicular west tower.
Please leave a donation to help with upkeep of this fine English medieval church.
Some very weathered medieval windows survive.
The medieval font.
Some of the stained glass windows and the west end of St Giles.
Depictions of sheep and pigs, very appropriate for this rural farming area!
Levisham is also a lovely village and larger than Lockton.
The broad street and grass verges of Levisham Village.
The Horseshoe Inn in Levisham
St John the Baptist Church, Levisham, built in 1884 and a chancel added in 1900.
The medieval/18th century? font and part of an Anglo-Saxon (Anglo-Danish) carved stone - from the old medieval church of St Mary, Levisham?
THE OLD MEDIEVAL CHURCH OF LEVISHAM
The old church of St Mary is in a forlorn state and is some distance from the village itself, at the bottom of the bank south of the village by Levisham Beck near Levisham Mill Farm. The chancel still retains a roof but the nave is an empty unroofed shell.
What was the nave but the Romanesque chancel arch (actually Anglo-Saxon, Pevsner) still survives!
A few fragments of medieval masonry just dumped in the only bit of covered area and some monuments only a few hundred years old
