Paley and Austin, architects, of Lancaster, when the north aisle was rebuilt on its old foundations, and the arcade, which had for centuries remained built up in the north wall of the nave, was re-opened; a new chancel and vestry were also erected at the same time: in the tracery of the east window are fragments of ancient glass, and the remainder of the window was filled with stained glass in 1894 by the late Lady Cholmley, in memory of her father: the church affords 100 sittings. The register dates from the year 1656. The living is a rectory, net yearly value £196, with residence, in the gift of Earl Fitzwilliam D.S.O. and others, and held since 1886 by the Rev. George Alexander Grenside M.A. of University College, Durham, rural dean of Settrington and incumbent of the donative of Wintringham. Here is a Wesleyan Methodist chapel. Lieut. George F. Cholmley R.N. is lord of the manor and the principal landowner. The soil is light and sandy; subsoil various. The chief crops are wheat, oats and barley.
