Church of St Giles (Netherwitton)

The earliest part of St Giles' Church is the chancel, which was probably built in the 12th century, but altered in the 15th century. The nave was rebuilt in the 18th century and remodelled in the later 19th century. Inside the church there is a 13th or 14th century font, a stone effigy of a woman, and a number of medieval grave slabs. This is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law.
