All Saints Church
Raughton Head was formally a Chapel of Ease, in the Parish of Castle Sowerby.
Tradition says that it was thatched with fern. After lying in ruins, the chapel was rebuilt and consecrated on the 21st July 1678, by Bishop Rainbow.
In 1760 the Chapel was restored at a cost of £300. The pews were placed lengthwise and a gallery was erected at the west end.
In 1881 it was again restored, this time at a cost of £700. The gallery was removed and the tower built. The pews were altered to their present position and an organ installed.
The lychgate was erected in 1894 and repaired in 1999 at a cost of £4,000.
The screen was erected in 1912. On All Saints’ Day 1936, the church (which previously had no name) was dedicated to All Saints by Bishop Williams.
