“Must visit”

Crypt of Lastingham Church
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Lovely church and worth a visit. Not many churches have this, and even fewer that allow you to wander around at your leisure.

One of the most historic sites in the land, the ancient crypt and shrine of St. Cedd, brother of St. Chad and Abbot of Lastingham in the 7th century, has a timeless quality to it!

I can think of no more a venerable place in the whole of England.

This is a lovely serene church with an ancient crypt underneath it. It's very atmospheric and you can't help but find a sense of peace and serenity within its walls. Well worth a visit.

What a remarkable church! The crypt partly dating from 1078 is unique and very interesting to read about. The visit was during the day on a weekday and unattended yet the electric lighting was on (not obtrusive) making the descent into the crypt safe but still atmospheric. There are several ancient stone crosses on display. A remarkable church for such a small and remote village. Recommended!
