Between secular Castle Howard and sacred Rievaulx Abbey lies the tiny hamlet of Stonegrave. Tucked into the hillside below the B1257 is Holy Trinity Church, also described as Stonegrave Minster. First reference made to Stonegrave occurs in a letter of 757. The Saxon church was entirely rebuilt in the Norman period and the tower built in the Norman period and the tower built in three stages. A drastic restoration took place in 1862-3 but not all was lost! The oak chancel screen is dated 1637 and the pulpit and screen between the chancel and north aisle are of a similar period. The splendid Saxon cross with a damaged wheel-head stands on a coffin lid of a similar period.
