Feature Sets

A parish church consisting of a chancel, nave with clerestory, N and S aisles, W tower and S porch. The N aisle arcade is of five bays while the S arcade is of three. The interior of the church is mostly 13thc. with enlargement and replacement of the windows and insertion of the clerestory in the 15thc. or 16thc. A portion of a rood screen, dating to about 1500, remains under the tower. Restoration of the church was undertaken by Ewan Christian in 1892. The only Romanesque feature is the font.


Whilst Beckingham is mentioned in the Domesday Survey as a property of the Archbishop of York there appears not to have been a church there. Sometime between 1120 and 1135 Thurstan, Archbishop of York created a Prebendary of Beckingham for Southwell Minster, which was suppressed in 1840. The first recorded priest at Beckingham was in 1347.





The tub font is unusual in having an everted lip and is taller and narrower than those generally found from this time.
