Kirkby Malham Connection
Often known as ‘The Cathedral of the Dales’, the Parish Church of St Michael the Archangel, Kirkby Malham was built of millstone grit, in a style known as Craven Perpendicular, by the monks of West Dereham Abbey in the 15th century on the site of a much earlier church. St Michael's contains some well-preserved Jacobean box pews and a decorated Norman font. Of particular interest are seven unusual stone pillars which once contained painted stone figures of Our Lord, the Virgin Mary, St Scythe, St Sonday and three other saints in niches.
