Abstract

At first sight the village church at Lastingham, set upon a hillock on the edge of the moors with the ground dropping away to the east, looks like a standard Norman parish church with later additions (Figure 1). The exterior has an eastern apse,preceded by a forebay, with Romanesque detailing: a string-course with billet and other abstract ornament beneath round-headed windows. The aisles have tracery windows of fourteenth- and fifteenth-century date, and the tower is fifteenth century. It could pass muster as any ordinary parish church; but further inspection reveals something very rare.
