A Tower, Triumphant

(Our trail begins on Market Hill, near the parking spaces for Church View Surgery, and the nursery school.  Use ‘View on map’ from the trail’s homepage to reach point ‘1’ and the start of the trail).

Looking at the historic image from 1902 and the present day scene, the dominant feature of this view is undoubtedly  St Augustine’s Church.  Most of the structure dates back to the 13th and 14th centuries, but the church was built way back in 1190.  It’s known locally as the ‘King Of Holderness’ and, with its triumphant tower, it’s easy to see why.
