St Barnabas Church was built at the cost of the Earl of Harewood and was designed by the architect Sir G G Scott whose other work included the Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station, the Albert Memorial and King's College London Chapel. The foundation stone was laid in 1851 by the Bishop of Ripon and construction was completed in 1852.
You may recognise St Barnabas as the church that was burnt down by Zoe Tate in Emmerdale. Luckily our church remained intact during filming !
St Barnabas Church is part of the Benefice of Lower Wharfedale, a group of 5 churches to the south of Harrogate, part of the Diocese of Leeds. The Benefice stretches from St Wilfrid's Church, Pool-In-Wharfedale through the Wharfe valley to St Peter's Church in Sicklinghall.
