Holy Trinity Church, Skipton
OS grid reference:- SD 990 519
Holy Trinity Church stands on Skipton's High Street, a Grade I listed building it dates back to the Medieval era.
The first church to occupy the site, probably constructed from wood, was built in the early twelfth century. The present stone structure was built in the thirteenth century and extended in the late fifteenth century.
The font boasts a Jacobean cover while the rood screen dates from Tudor times. There are several monuments to the Clifford family in the church dating from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The church was damaged during the Civil War, when bombardment from cannon damaged the tower and was repaired and restored in the 1650s with the aid of the heiress Lady Anne Clifford of Skipton Castle, whose father's tomb may be seen in the church. Holy Trinity was adopted as the burial place of the Clifford family following the dissolution of Bolton Priory in 1539.
The building was restored in 1909 by the Lancaster architects Austin and Paley.
