Feature Sets

A simple church of nave and chancel in one. The church was largely rebuilt 1777-8. The earlier fabric is rag-stone, repairs in brick in the upper parts. The only Romanesque feature is a plain circular font, shallow and on a stem.


Yapham is mentioned in Domesday: 'Land of the King: in Iapun, ULf and Ulstan (had) 10 carucates and 6 bovates for geld. Land for two ploughs. 40s'. Also around the time of the Domesday Book, Lewin the priest gave 14 bovates in Yapham to St Mary's York.





Comparable with the font at Lockington.

Church has medieval masonry, but no sculpture noted.
