West Witton – Grave Situation


Below is the church of St Batholomew in West Witton where the churchyard (above) was consecrated in 1752.

The majority of the grave stones follow a dales tradition of using uncarved local stone asĀ  markers or memorial.

When shown together these numerous limestone markers give testament to times and people gone by make an impressive display.

The church contains this Victorian stained glass, a carvedĀ  stone Saxon cross now on display above the pulpit and a traditional lychgate.(below)


A tribute to the local district nurse

    1. I drank in the Fox & Hounds and walked down the lane to the churchyard. Perhaps I had too much to drink and forgot I had stopped in Kettlewell en-route.
      Thank you for putting me right
