Crayke Primary School
St Cuthbert’s in Crayke is a fifteenth-century church, although the bells in the tower are from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Inside the church, there is a seventeenth-century rood screen that was converted into a War Memorial after the First World War, and a seventeenth-century priest’s desk and chairs that are still in use today. The wooden pews and some of the panelling was added when the church was restored in the nineteenth century.
Children from Crayke Primary School explored the church with the creative writer and staff from The Laurence Sterne Trust. They then wrote about their experience of the church and the things it made them feel and imagine. You can read some of their work by following the link at the bottom of the page.
