Church of All Saints, Church Lane, Hawnby, North Yorkshire, YO62 5QA

All Saints, Hawnby is a beautiful historic building in a peaceful and stunning rural setting by the River Rye in Ryedale. It is a poetry shrine, and a listed building with a fascinating history dating back to the 12th century.

Lying in a secluded rural setting just outside the village of Hawnby in Ryedale, All Saints dates back to the 12th century with many historical features and links including a rather fine stained glass window commemorating "the fighting parson of Hawnby" in the First World War. The church is keen to welcome poets and at the rear is a collection of poetry books and a folder marked "Fresh Poems In Here" accompanied by pens and paper. Historical information will be on display and light refreshments will be available.
