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.

Read More

Hull - St Stephen

Built as a utilitarian hall that could in part be used as a church. Subsequent alterations have made an attractive neighbourhood centre but the complex is of no architectural significance.
