All Saints. A 12th century church, well worth a visit, though opening times are restricted and should be checked beforehand. This was the parish church before Christ Church was built in the 19th century. Interior view. NZ 5562 1083. Both Steve Bulman. Another interior view, Kenneth Paver. Two more views of the interior - 1, 2, a Norman doorway, the chancel and the font, all Chris Stafford (2015). Link. Grade I listed. A headstone in the churchyard is listed separately as grade II.

Christ Church on Guisborough Road. NZ 5570 1085. Bill McKenzie. Another view, Steve Bulman. Link. Grade II listed, wherein it's dated to 1876-7.

A former Congregational Chapel stands off High Street at NZ 5581 1073. Its grade II listing dates it to 1769, although the date above teh door is 1879. Peter Morgan (2021).

A Friends' Meeting House of 1722 stands on High Green, and can be seen on a Streetview from 2009. NZ 5631 1063. Grade II listed.

Methodist Church on High Street. NZ 5604 1078. Steve Bulman. Link.

St. Margaret Clitherow (R.C.) on Overbrook, as seen by Streetview in 2009. NZ 5568 1059. Link.

Former chapel on High Street. NZ 5611 1076. Steve Bulman. Janet Gimber has advised that this was Wesleyan Methodist (this is supported by the 25" O.S. map of 1891-1914 , though its Genuki entry says it was Primitive Methodist).  It was superseded by the then new Methodist Chapel between 1919 and 1928. The building behind the modern extension of the Methodist Chapel (above) may be that building.
