Guisborough Church

Guisborough Church
The church of St. Nicholas consists of chancel 52 ft. 6 in. by 25 ft., with north vestry and organ chamber, nave 90 ft. by 25 ft. with north and south aisle, and west tower standing partly within the western bay of the nave and forming externally the entrance porch. The building has but little ancient work except in the chancel, nave arcades and tower, having been almost entirely rebuilt or restored at the close of the 18th century and again in 1903–8. The older parts just named are of late 15th or early 16th-century date and are of no great architectural interest, though the design of the tower with its lofty external arch and recessed entrance is unusual.

Graves writing about 1808 describes the building as 'a plain but neat edifice rather of a modern construction with some late repairs.'
