St Nicholas Church

Roxby, Yorkshire England UK

Church of England (Anglican)

The Roxby St Nicholas Church stands on an ancient site, greatly predating written records. The oldest part of the church, the chancel, was built in 1520 by Thomas Boynton, adjacent to the vanished Norman manor house of the Boyntons of Roxby, Royalists, deposed during the Civil War. The Church was enlarged in 1818. The Bishop of Whitby presided at a service of Eurcharist for the Hallowing of Bells, dedicated in honour of Ss Nicholas and Thomas, January, 2004.
