Further Information
Features of Interest
• St James Church in Warter, standing on the site of an Augustinian Priory, was built in 1862-63 for Lord Muncaster.  It is a prominent feature in the landscape of this picturesque Wolds estate village.  The superb Edwardian Arts and Crafts monuments by Sir George Frampton and Gilbert Bayes, and stained glass by R Anning Bell, that commemorate the family of the first Lord Nunburnholme are of national importance.  Now redundant, the church is a heritage centre for the Yorkshire Wolds.
