St Oswald's Church – Castle Bolton in Yorkshire Dales

This picture shows the small church of St Oswald’s in Castle Bolton in Wensleydale in the Yorkshire dales.

St Oswald’s church is adjacent to the 14th century Bolton castle. The church is a small but beautiful and mostly unaltered medieval place of worship.

The above photograph shows the interior of St Oswalds church, Castle bolton.

I saw this notice on the door of the church and smiled inwardly. “Please close the door to stop the swallows flying into the church. They make a great mess”.

It’s a beautiful church and the sign is priceless.

What an interesting church! And pretty shots of it inside and out. I love that you included the hand-lettered sign! And I am glad that they leave the door unlocked so that people can enjoy the beautiful interior. I am just blown away by the age of this structure and glad that it has obviously been well taken care of.

I’ll bet they do make a great mess, but what fun to watch them!

I like the look of this church. The inside is superb without the mess!

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
