Medieval heritage -
This very simple, peaceful church has been overshadowed since the late 14th century when Richard le Scrope, 1st Baron Scrope of Bolton, built his castle next door.
It is a very small village with a few surrounding farms and a large area of moorland. Much of the village and the grouse moor to the north still belongs to the Bolton Estate.
Visitors are welcome -
The beautiful scenery and the medieval castle (managed by Lord Bolton’s son, Tom Orde-Powlett) attract many visitors with the tourist routes including the Turner Trail. The doors of the church are open every day so that visitors can enjoy the exhibition inside.
Plant sales are held outside the church on the Spring Bank Holidays in aid of Bolton-cum-Redmire parish Mission partners, Mark and Sarah Newnham who are with the Mission Aviation Fellowship in Liberia, and St George's Crypt in Leeds.
The parish takes an active part in Mission and Outreach within the Benefice and also with the King’s Club at Askrigg each summer.
As part of Bolton-cum-Redmire parish the congregation seeks:
‘To show to all people, of all ages, the saving grace of Jesus through the vitality and outreach of our Church services and activities and through the lives of individuals within our Parish, Benefice and beyond.’
