At Skelton-in-Cleveland

A further postcard view of Skelton High Street, with the Wharton Arms and All Saints Church viewed over Egg Cup farm; the then muddy lane to The Hills is now a metalled public road. Note also the trees planted in front of the Wharton Arms, I wonder how long they lasted?

Inside New Church, Skelton

A postcard view of the interior of Skelton’s All Saints church; built in 1884 to replace the old All Saints church which still stands close to Skelton Castle. In June 1884 the new pulpit was installed; “designed by R. J. Johnson architect of Newcastle it is octagonal in form on a curved stone base”. This magnificent church still stands proud beside the High Street, the stone now more darkened than when first built.
