Church of England Diocese of York Mappleton with Goxhill

About Us

St Giles Church, Goxhill is a treasure of the area. It is on a well-used rambler path and the Church is enjoyed for its unique sense of peace and spirituality. Regular services are held on the 5th Sunday only, but the Church is often filled to overflowing at Harvest Festival and Christmas Carol Services. In recent years the building was renovated and decorated, the tower being partially rebuilt.
It seems that a church was on this site in Norman times, and has been cared for by various families including the Lellays in 1297 and the Stokeses, who passed it on to Marmaduke Constable of Wassand. In the floor of the Nave is a memorial slab to Marmaduke Constable who died in 1690. Look for the interesting effigy in the Chancel.
The Church, consisting of Chancel, Nave and square Western Tower (containing one bell) was rebuilt in 1840 by Charles Constable. 51 years ago St Giles Church was in ill repair and closed. Today the Church is within the Parish of Mappleton and Goxhill with Great Hatfield and is cared for lovingly by PCC, congregation and friends.
