Whilst staying in the lovely village of Burton Fleming settled near the boarder of East Riding and North Yorkshire, I decided to take some photos of this simple yet beautiful parish church. There is not much history of the church, but I did find a report written about it published in 1893. It could have been written last year as it remains unchanged to this day. I have decided to copy and link the information:
The church of St. Cuthbert is an ancient edifice, originally erected in the Early English period, but subsequently restored and partially rebuilt of brick. It consists of chancel, nave, south porch, and western tower containing two bells. There was formerly a south aisle, but this has been taken down, and the arcade which separated it from the nave filled up with masonry. The original chancel arch is gone, but the piers remain, as also do the columns of the Early English doorway, with capitals once richly carved. The church was repaired in 1887, at a cost of £75, and at the same time a small turret clock, with two dials, was placed in the tower in commemoration of Her Majesty’s jubilee. The organ was presented by the vicar and his family in 1883. The font is ancient, and consists of a circular bowl and shaft, resting on a base bearing sculptured heads, now scarcely recognisable. The windows, Gothic on one side and square wooden framed ones on the other, are filled with plain glass. The interior is furnished with old-fashioned pews for 150 worshippers. This church was formerly a chapel to the mother church of Hunmanby, but became parochial before the Reformation.

(This all the information that I have at the moment as my computer HD has crashed and all my photos have been lost along with all the photo information. As soon as I can have the info retrieved, I will add it here.)
