Gilling East - Our Lady and the Holy Angels

The significance of this building lies not in the architectural qualities of the chapel, which are modest, but in the fact that it forms part of a stone lodge to Gilling Castle, built in Tudor style in 1837.

Green Hammerton - St Joseph (Chapel of Ease)

Late 18th century village Congregational chapel which underwent a liturgically advanced remodelling after acquisition for the Catholic parish of Our Lady, Acomb in 1961. The church sits in a small burial ground and is at the heart of a conservation area.

Guisborough - St Paulinus

The church was cheaply built in the 1920s and later extended in similar vein. It is of no of particular architectural or historic interest.

Haxby - St Margaret Clitherow

A modern church of fairly striking design, serving the northern suburbs of York.

Hedon - SS Mary and Joseph

An important survival of a relatively unspoilt Georgian Catholic church. It is modest and discreetly tucked away, has the appearance of a Nonconformist chapel. Delightfully simple interior, though of Georgian elegance in its apsed ends.

Helmsley - St Mary

Attractive late-19th century stone built Gothic chapel, its gable, roof and picturesque bellcote prominent in the northern approach to this historic town.

Hessle - Our Lady

An undistinguished 1950s church of pre-war design. While not unattractive, the building is conventional in its planning, form and architectural expression.

Holme-on-Spalding-Moor - St John the Baptist

Highly important as an early private chapel built before the first Catholic Relief Act, most probably from designs by John Carr of York, a major regional architect. There is a fine Corinthian altarpiece, but the building is otherwise architecturally a little disappointing, following alterations carried out during the 20th century.

Hornsea - Sacred Heart

The church is of some architectural merit and has a character redolent of the 1950s. The bold forms of the broad front and the semi-circular stair tower and sanctuary, together with the sloping buttresses and lack of fuss, give the building some appeal.

Hull - Corpus Christi

A modest and architecturally unexceptional Gothic church which makes only a very limited contribution to the local townscape.

Hull - Holy Name

A quirky building in its isolated position and toy-like appearance. One of the more individual of the churches designed by Bishop Shine but not architecturally distinguished.

Hull - Our Lady of Lourdes and St Peter Chanel

A rather austere 1950s church, not without a certain appeal in its clean lines and simple forms but not architecturally distinguished.

Hull - Sacred Heart

A modest church, not unattractive but of little architectural merit.

Hull - St Anthony and Our Lady of Mercy

A striking 1960s church design by a local architectural practice, with complete period fittings. Robert Carson considered the chapel ‘so successful in its design and furnishings, a chapel of such remarkable beauty, that one begins to take a real pride in 20th century architecture.’

Hull - St Bede

The church and associated buildings are not unappealing in their simple clean lines but architecturally they are not distinguished and, despite the corner site, the group does not have a significant townscape presence.

Hull - St Charles Borromeo

A Catholic church of the first rank, both for its early date and for the later embellishment with a Baroque drama rarely seen in this country.

Read More

Hull - St Francis

St Francis ofAssisiis a well crafted building with good attention to detail and furnishings. A criterion for the design of the church was that it should be ‘a gently unfolding building– a religious experience to touch the emotions’. This challenging brief has been impressively realised by Stienlet, especially with regard to the interior. A good contemporary Catholic church.

Hull - St Joseph

A curiosity rather than a building of any particular architectural or historic significance, being a Victorian farmhouse converted to a church. The two stained glass windows in the sanctuary are of some interest.

Read More

Hull - St Mary, Queen of Martyrs

1970s church design of some architectural merit in its use of space and the bold jagged roofline. Some contemporary fittings also of merit.
