Snow has returned to Yorkshire the last couple of days and this photo shows St Oswalds Church in Collingham. The parish church of St Oswalds is the parish church of Collingham with Harewood.
Much altered by the Victorians (like so many parish churches) 1840-41 St Oswalds church thought to pre date the arrival of the Normans in 1066. St Oswald is an Anglo-Saxon saint and much of the stonework of the knave and chancel is Saxon. The clock on the church tower was installed in 1891, the tower dating from the 16th Century.
