ABOUT THIS CHURCH

Known as “The Queen of Holderness” St Patrick’s is widely regarded as one of the finest parish churches in England it was constructed almost entirely in a single phase between the end of the c13 and the middle of the c14. The black death paused works until the elegant spire and east window were built by c1400. Pevsner describes the building thus “For sheer architectural beauty few parish churches in England can vie with Patrington. It is not only its size…and it certainly is not the often quoted fact of transepts with east and west aisles. Rather it is a unity of exterior and a unity of interior with calm perfection in each which one never ceases to admire.”
