Wharfedale Skipton into Pendle Opening Times
DENT | GIGGLESWICK, St Alkelda
The history of this glorious, mellow church spans 1000 years. It witnessed violent days in the Scots raids of the 14th century, the Wars of the Roses and the Rising in the North, but for centuries was a religious stronghold for a vast area. Among a wealth of interesting items are three battered Tempest effigies and a 17th century pulpit, reading desk, communion rail and poor box of rare quality and curiosity. Dr Birkbeck of Settle, founder of Mechanics' Institutes, is commemorated here.
