This great 14th Century Church holds a prominent position right at the top of Skipton High street overlooking the Town. A number of dignitaries are buried in the Churchyard here; Eleanor Brandon along with five Earls of Cumberland are among Countesses and their Children. The memorial to George Clifford, third Earl of Skipton is particularly striking and was designed by Lady Anne Clifford who was known as the self styled Queen of the North.
