Artist's Description

Dating from 1850, the Church Of Saint Margaret Of Antioch in the small town of Hawes, North Yorkshire, England is in an elevated position giving the church an excellent vantage point over the winding streets below.

St Margaret’s has a three-stage west tower that dominates the skyline. Inside, the church is enlivened by stained glass which includes a new Millennium window that celebrates the town’s 300 years as a market town (William III gave it its charter in 1699). The original parish bier (a timber-framed wheeled cart used for hauling a coffin) is displayed in the church and much of the furniture is by Robert Thompson.

St Margaret’s Church is an English Heritage Grade II Listed building (LBS Number: 323147).

Hawes is a small market town and civil parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England, historically within the North Riding of Yorkshire.

Located at the head of Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales, Hawes is one of the tourist attractions of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The parish of Hawes also includes the neighbouring hamlet of Gayle. The hill of Great Shunner Fell stands over the town. The town is famous as being the home of Wensleydale cheese.
