Lych-Gate, Holy Trinity, Coverham by 


A 13th century church in a superb setting in the Yorkshire Dales, near the River Cover which gave its name to the village. Holy Trinity stands beside the site of the 12th Premonstratensian Abbey at Coverham.

The church is a largely 13th century building, with a late 15th or early 16th century tower. The south aisle was added in the 14th century. Most of the interior furnishings date to a Victorian restoration. There are 13th century lancets and larger 14th century traceried windows in the south wall, and a 14th century piscina.

The highlight of Coverham church is the sandstone lintel over the south door. This is a re-used section of a Saxon cross shaft, and may date to the 9th century, an indication that there was a church on this site long before the current building was erected. The lintel is carved with a pair of figures, though they are much worn and it is difficult to discern who or what they are intended to represent.

Holy Trinity is built of rubble, with a slate roof, and consists of a nave, north vestry, south aisle, chancel, south porch, and west tower. This lovely country church is no longer used for regular worship and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
