Parish Church. Mostly late C14 incorporating part of the plinth of the earlier church. Squared and coursed limestone with nave parapet, all on chamfered plinth. Steeply-pitched red sandstone slate nave roof and graduated greenslate chancel roof with coped gable and cross finial. 2-bay nave with north and south porches, transept chapels and west twin bellcote, moved to its present position in 1812; 3-bay chancel with north lean-to vestry. Pointed-arched lean-to stone porches. 3-light panel-tracery windows, that in west wall under 3-light cusped fLat-headed windows; similar 2-light windows in transepts, all under hoodmoulds with carved-head label stops. Flattened hexagonal north-east stair turret under stone slate spire gives access to parapet walk which goes completely around nave, the bellcote set back to allow for the walkway. Chancel has south priest's doorway in pointed arch and 2-light cusped and panel-tracery windows, all under hoodmoulds with carved label stops. Similar east window. 2-light south window and vestry window with flat heads, the vestry window with cusps, both with hoods.

hearsay The stone vaulted roof of the nave is unique in England. The style is commonly found in France, and occasionally in Scotland. From 1379 the Lord of the Manor was Ralph Neville of Raby. In 1380 he served as Governor of Provence where he might seen this style of building, and might have been responsible for the building here.
Ferguson, C J: 1876=1877: Boltongate Church: TransCWAAS: vol.3

hearsay Another tale tells that the church was built by a magic imp, working for the wizard Michael Scott from Holme Coultram.
