For all the saints …

The elegant Victorian church of All Saints, Helmsley, seen from the top of the market square near the Black Swan hotel. The unidentified house sets off the church rather nicely. 

There has been a church on this site since before the Norman conquest, and the current one apparently replaced a 12th century construction, which would be unthinkable today.


  1. What an interesting pattern on the house.

  2. The house design almost contends with the church for attention to artistic style! The church seems like a canvas for the house! Fascinating photo!

  3. A pretty juxtaposition, both very historic I should think.

  4. I was completely distracted by the house and almost didn't notice the church!

    Have a wonderful Easter!
