St Andrews Church in Aysgarth

By tommyld
Thank you for all the C+Cs on my recent uploads, they are very much appreciated.

Aysgarth is a village and civil parish in Wensleydale, in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. The village is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, about sixteen miles south-west from Richmond. According to the 2001 UK census the parish had a population of 197 people in 88 households.
St. Andrew's Church in Aysgarth was substantially rebuilt in 1536, and restored in 1866 is now a Grade II* listed building. The unusually large churchyard extends to about four acres. The church preserves a number of fittings that were rescued from Jervaulx Abbey at the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries, including a rood screen and the abbot's stall.

The village gives its name to the nearby Aysgarth Falls.
