Kirby Grindalythe St Andrew


The Parish

The parish or Kirby Grindalythe lies in the northern portion of Yorkshire's East Riding. Kirby Grindalythe is a small and compact village lying in the Yorkshire Wolds about 7 miles northwest of the market town of Driffield. Kirby Grindalythe sits in an area largely devoid of numbered main roads, the closest the B1253 road lies a little more than 2 miles west of the village and is part of a series of minor B roads connecting Driffield with Norton on Derwent. The Wolds are underlain by chalk and consequently the soils are thin and nutrient poor, sheep rearing would have dominated the landscape whilst some arable would also have been grown, today the latter is dominant due to modern fertilisers and heavy machinery. There is little surface drainage due to the porous chalk, but Kirby Grindalythe has a charming clear stream running through the main village street, the stream drains northeastwards but is intermittent on its way finally becoming sub-surface from Butterwick on its underground journey to the nearby North Sea. Kirby Grindalythe is sited, within this valley, at around 100 metres above the sea and is surrounded by swelling chalk downs rising to almost 200 metres to the southwest of the village. Parishes on the Wolds tend to be larger than those in lower-lying areas and Kirby Grindalythe was one of the greater in extent, covering almost 7,600 acres it would have supported a population of close to 500 parishioners. In Domesday times Kirby Grindalythe was returned as part of the manor of Turodebi, a personal holding of King William it offered just a pair of ploughs, a small meadow but did possess a mill.

The Church

St Andrew's church sits on the northern edge of the village, slightly uphill from the valley bottom and its chuckling clear stream. Sadly St Andrew is a church much modified over the years despite having its origins in the 12th century. Wat appears the oldest portion, namely the chancel which shows the Norman Romanesque style is, in fact, a rebuild in the same style dating from 1870s. The 13th century nave is also new and dates from that same rebuild. The only original piece is the western tower which remains from the 12th century Norman Romanesque period but is topped by a Perpendicular and 14th century bell stage and recessed spire. It is internally, however, that the most important work appears, the mosaic depicting the Ascension of Christ may be relatively modern, it dates from 1893, but it is a singular piece which Pevsner rightly describes as "amazing" and is well worth a visit to see. The lane on which the church stands parallels the valley running east to west with the church on the southern side, a small pull-in sits opposite the gated entrance but can be muddy. The churchyard is open and with no obstacles for photography, however it is a little tight to the southeastern aspect which is favoured making it difficult to get sufficiently far back to accommodate the extent of the spire.
