The church of St.Oswald today contains legacies from the past and fine craftsmanship from our own times. The result is a most successful new creation which brings everything into complete harmony. The best place to begin a tour of the building is just under the gallery at the west end. There are the old stones carved by the descendants of the Vikings, marvellously preserved to our day (other fragments may be seen on application to the Churchwardens or the Rector). As your eye travels up the Church you see the beautiful proportions of the design and the fine beams of the roof. When you walk up the Nave the wall on the left is one of the original walls, supported by great buttresses outside. On it are memorials to the Phipps family.
