Lovely walk in the grounds
Aug 2020 • Family
Visited here whilst visiting Grosmont for the day. It was a nice short walk through the grounds. Some of the gravestones have lovely inscriptions. Great photo opportunities in regards to the church exterior.

Interesting church
Aug 2019
Victorian church, built as Grosmont grew as an industrial village. Large, Victorian and well maintained. Good information boards about the history of the village, and context of the church.

A welcoming growing church congregation

We had the privilege of attending a worship service on Sunday. What an encouraging experience. Welcomed warmly, good music, a very meaningful sermon by Canon Stuart Bell that was full of 'fire', very appropriate for Pentecost Sunday. Coffee and biscuits afterwards. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

Nothing special

Called in here after travelling on the NYMR. Nice to be able to visit, but it didn’t have any special features to grab our attention.

Beautiful church

This church is easily reached from the railway has a calm and serene atmosphere. It is well worth a visit to sit and let the atmosphere take over. The fabric of the church is well maintained.

Didnt get to the church on time

I was disappointed to find that the church doors locked when visiting on a Monday whilst in the area. Although I did look around the outside, I didn't appreciate it as much. No opening times or reasons why it was closed, so difficult yo know when to revisit, if I ever did.

If you are visiting Grosmont village to see the NYMR engine sheds why not pop in en route and have a look around this church on the hill.

St. Matthew's was built between 1873 and 1875 and consecrated on 6 August 1875. It replaced an earlier church on the site which opened in 1842. However, it was too small for a growing congregation which steadily increased with the opening of the Whitby-Pickering railway in 1836.

Well worth a visit if you're in the area as it is in the centre of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The churchyard is also well kept and has some very interesting graves to check out.

To find a church door open these days is a miracle in itself!

As an added bonus, there's a licensed cafe just along the road should you wish to take a rest and enjoy a coffee and cake or a glass of wine or beer.
