HOMEPAGE Pickering ScenesHOMEPAGE for all of Phil and Molly's Pics8. Scenes around Lockton and Levisham Villages

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

LOCKTON VILLAGE

The YHA Youth Hostel at Lockton Village.

 

The 13th-14th century church of St Giles, Lockton, is worth a visit.

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.

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

At Levisham Station there is also a nice display of pictures in an old goods van, a railway artist's studio and a new tea room is being built (May 2008) near the pretty little signal box for the most friendly and jolly 'servers' of the Tea Hut!
