St Hilda's Church Ellerburn

 

The church of St. Hilda is set in the wooded valley at Ellerburn near Thornton-Le-Dale and is the mother church of the benefice as it is by far the oldest.

 

The church dates as far back as 1050AD with some parts as old as 850AD. As you enter the church you see the font under the West window. The font, like the stone altar in the chancel, are the oldest parts of the church. In 1905 restoration work, by Caroe was completed and present day parishioners still benefit from his vision and foresight. The vestry and porch were additions designed by him. 

 

St Hilda's attracts hundreds of visitors each year who come to sample the peace and tranquillity of this Grade 2* listed building. Why not enjoy a walk down Ellerburn Valley with the Festival? See the Green Walk in the free Walks Booklet - Click here to download

  • In July we held a lovely Animal and Pet Service at St Hilda's. We had to close the door for the loudness of the singing of the birds; as they busied themselves rebuilding their nest in the church porch which had collapsed earlier this week. The dogs were, as always, well behaved and woofed at all the right places!
  • Many thanks to all who helped prepare for the service, played the organ, provided the refreshments for humans and animals, and to all who came.

The church is open each day between 10.00 am and 4.00 pm and services are held twice monthly with special services such as Carols by Candlelight and the Service of Light being annual events.
