The George Hotel is a fine looking building and a good place for lunch before strolling up to visit the Parish Church of - which is well away from centre of Easingwold.
The Parish Church of All Saints and St John has its origins in the late 11th-early 12th century.
The west tower is broad and embattled.
Looking west down the nave with its sets of attractive Perpendicular arches (five bays).
Quite a nice brightly painted west gallery, which should be at times populated by singers and musicians!
Some sculptured heads - gargoyles- set into a window of the south wall.
Above a doorway on the way up to the church - "God with us 1664"
'The White House' is one of the most handsome buildings in Easingwold, built of brick and with five bay windows on the ground floor.
