8/17 The Presbytery and Roman
Catholic Church of Saint
Presbytery and church. Presbytery 1790 and Church 1809 for Richard Talbot and Charles
Saul on land given by Stephen Ingilby of Raventoftus (qv). Restored C20. Coursed
squared gritstone, concrete tile roof. Presbytery: 2 storeys with attics, 3
bays. Central glazed door with C20 porch, flanked by 4-light windows with
flat-faced mullions, some renewed C20. First floor: 3- and 4-light windows
of similar type. End stacks. Left return: 2-light mullioned window lights
tall attic storey. Interior: the original chapel was in the attic of this
house, and is reported to contain a collar-beam roof, reused. Not seen at
resurvey. Church attached to right of presbytery: 4 bays, each with a plain
round-headed window. Stone cross at right gable end. Entrance porch at
east end (right) with board door. Interior: original 6-panel double doors
with strap hinges between porch and body of church; a narrow 6-panel door
links the chapel to the presbytery. No other original fittings. The strong
local Roman Catholic tradition is recorded in the mid C20 stained glass
windows. The site for the Presbytery was given by Stephen Ingilby who lived
at Raventofts Hall (qv). Raventofts had been an important refuge for
Catholics and the priest serving the Medieval church of Saint John, (the
tower only survives (qv)), lived at the house. Stephen Ingilby was a
conformist and probably wanted to remove the recusant connection from
Raventofts. B Jennings, A History of Nidderdale, 1967, p 380.
