St Denys

This small medieval church, built on the site of a Saxon church and possibly a Roman temple, conceals a fine collection of stained glass, including the earliest in York.

Hanes yr eglwys hon

Inside the sculpted Norman doorway there is a lovely 15th century timbered roof and, almost hidden high above the south aisle arcade, four carved 12th century Norman heads.

St Denys was once a lot larger than it is now, but parts of it subsided after the king's fish pool was drained and a sewer was built nearby, resulting in an unusual square shaped church made up of just the east end with its flanking chapels.

Further mishaps followed: the original spire was hit by cannon shot, struck by lightning and then partially blown down during the 17th and 18th centuries and was only replaced in the Victorian age.

Eglwys Crist

Adeiladwyd yr eglwys gyntaf ar y safle hwn yn 1841, ond fe’i difrodwyd yn ddifrifol gan dân. Yn ôl yr hanes, ym mis Mai 1891, cynhaliodd y Ficer ‘briodas yn yr adfeilion’.
