St Giles Church Skelton

Watercolour by
Edwin Ridsdale Tate
(1862 -1922)

This image is from a watercolour
now in the possession of the Very Revd. Henry Stapleton,
who was the
Rector of St Giles Church Skelton
from 1967 - 1975
and
also co-founded the Skelton Village Trust during his time in the village.

It was given to him by Norman Wright who then lived at the Cottage.

It shows the Victorian white lattice gates to Skelton Manor.
The tree to the left no longer exists
but a depression where it stood can still be found in the grass verge.
Some of the headstones in the church yard
can be still identified from this painting.

The watercolour is by York - born Victorian artist and architect
Edwin Ridsdale Tate
and was painted by him in September 1883 at the age of 20 years or so.

Presented to Skelton Village Trust Archives
by Peter J Stanhope, January 2009.
