Swine in Holderness Church St Mary the Virgin Interior

Location: Main Street, Swine, Yorkshire



Opening Information:


There may have been a Saxon church at Swine and there is evidence that by the 8th Century a church existed there. Robert de Verli founded a Cistercian Priory in Holderness in the reign of King Stephen (1135-1154) and was dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. In 1086 the Domesday Book mentions a priest, so it is likely a chuch was also present.
