All Saints Church - with origins in the Norman age - is set back off Low
Green. It is famous for its connection with James Cook who worshiped
here in his youth; is part of the Captain Cook heritage Trail, and
where the graves of his mother, brother, sister, and others of
importance in his life can be found.
Originally built in 1123 the church was granted by Robert de Meynell of
Whorlton Castle to the Abbott and Benedictine Convent of Whitby Abbey.
All Saints has seen many alterations over the centuries - clearly seen
from the exterior. However, it is a fine example of Norman architecture.
Opening hours are: 2pm - 4.30pm daily from April to September and also
10.30 - 12.30 on Tuesdays. Admission is free
