It is both wonderful and fascinating to see a Church that has lost few (if any) of its reformation and Elizabethan characteristics. The central pulpit and box pews built for families to sit together being just two examples of early characters that have not been lost to later trends in Church design. All in all a fascinating and beautiful Church very well worth visiting.

We visited on Heritage Open Days, having been into the church on several occasions. Good exhibition of local War Memorials, in addition to interesting box pews and other Georgian features

Sitting atop the cliff that overlooks Whitby give this church a dramatic and impressive location and amazing views from the graveyard. The inside of the church is also very interesting and well worth a visit.

Some architectural oddities and a sprawling graveyard worth a look on your way up or down to or from the Abbey
