St Andrew

St Andrew’s has gained international fame when it was chosen by Hornby, the model train makers, to be the church for their model village of Skeldale.

About this church

St Andrew’s is a small greenstone church of late Saxon and early Norman origin and consists of a chancel, nave, vestry, west porch and a bell cote containing one bell.

Worship has taken place in this beautiful and peaceful location for over 1000 years in a welcoming community, and the mission work reaches as far as Wiyiemerirrie in Kenya with its latest orphanage project.
