St. George’s Church Wilton

A delightful Church set in the small farming village of Wilton, just 2 miles east of Thornton le Dale


St. George’s is the “modern” church of our parish, being built in the early 20th century, but is traditional in design. Parts of the internal stonework however, date back to the 13th century and of particular interest is the Norman Tub Font.


The church is very much the centre of the farming community, particularly for all the agricultural festivals that take place during the year.


Everybody is very welcome to any of the services, details of which can be found below as well as on the notice board in the church porch, or the churchwarden can be contacted on: 01751 476709.
