St Hedda, Egton Bridge

The birthplace of Nicholas Postgate.   Mass was said in this area throughout the Recusant period. From the early 18th Century, Bridgeholme Green, the home of the Smith family, contained a chapel. In 1797 the Smith family donated land on which a chapel and priest’s house were completed the following year. This building became a school in 1867 when the present church was opened (architect Matthew Ellison Hadfield of Sheffield). Post Code: YO21 1UU ​
