St Mary the Virgin is nestled in the heart of yorkshire’s beautiful Nidderdale Valley. In the 12th Century the monks of Byland Abbey built a large Grange at Ramsgill. The remains of their chapel can be seen behind the east end of the present church which was built in 1842. From a seat in the churchyard there are lovely views over Gouthwaite Reservoir with its fascinating bird life.

St Mary the Virgin is a small rural church which celebrates a 9am Holy Communion service according to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.



Services: 2nd Sundays of the month at 9am


Whilst visiting St Mary’s why not visit How Stean Gorge, Lofthouse? Whether for the scrumptious café or to explore the steep-sided chasm with natural caves it’s worth a visit. Or visit the Methodist Chapel in Wath village. It is architecturally unique having five sides each of different lengths.
