St. Catherine's Church, Barmby Moor

Jacob and I went on a run and ended up in Barmby Moor near Pocklington here in East Yorkshire. We came to St. Catherine's Church and as we walked around the church and graveyard, we saw an older woman walking toward the church and said hello. She was very friendly and had a key to the church, so invited us in with her! Her name is Joan. We didn't have long so I didn't learn much of the history while there, but the St. Catherine's Church website has some information. There's a cute little pipe organ. Outside there's a special section of the cemetery for Commonwealth war graves, including fallen soldiers from New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.
