A late nineteenth century church, built as an ‘alternative’ to the ancient ‘Valley Church’ of St Mary’s (now redundant), St John the Baptist’s in the farming village of Levisham incorporates the font from the original church and other features too, including the celebrated ‘Dragon Stone’.

However, most visitors who enter the church are struck immediately by the symmetry of the roof beams, and the more observant will soon begin looking for mice, for examples of the woodcarving skills of ‘Thompson of Kilburn’ abound. (A game of ‘Hunt the Mouse’ will delight young and old alike.)

Even with so much to see, the church is a much-appreciated place to stop for a moment of tranquillity and peace.
