St Michael and All Angels, Linton-in-Craven, Yorkshire, West Riding

16 July 2019

On a walk from Burnsall to Grassington along the river wharfe, I came across the church at Linton. 
The amazing view of the church across the stepping stone has to be one of the most beautiful sights and well worth visiting just to see the view.

Linton is 8 miles N of Skipton in Yorkshire. Near the river Wharfe, where there is a famous set of stepping stones, the squat medieval church of St Michael has N and S aisles enclosing nave and chancel, and a square bellcote at the W end of the nave roof. Restored 1861 (Leach and Pevsner, 2009, 574).  Part of the N nave arcade and chancel arch responds are 12thc., while the chancel arch itself and the S arcade are 13thc.  There is a plain 12thc. font. and some reset capitals.

Inside the door way there is plenty of information about the church, giving details about the architecture and what to look for in and out side the building.

Old barn in one of the fields next to the church.

Will go back and have a proper look round, and remember to take some change to buy one of the leaflets on the church.
