A beautiful Yorkshire church with connections to the Scropes of Bolton….

Holy Trinity Church, Wensley, North Yorkshire

Here is a link to a very interesting paper on the astonishingly beautiful but now redundant church of Holy Trinity in the small North Yorkshire village of Wensley. I’m posting it because this church was much patronised by the Scropes of Bolton who did, of course, have great connections to our period and to various families of consequence, including the de la Poles.

For more about the church, Wikipedia has a page from which the above external photograph has been taken. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Trinity_Church,_Wensley
