The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Butterwick

Deep within the Gypsey Race valley is the small rural settlement of Butterwick. It is made up of houses, farms and associated buildings with agriculture being the main occupation.

Sheep graze in the churchyard of the tiny little stone built church with a cross mounted high on the narrow bell tower. The church contains a Norman Font and on its south side there is an effigy dating back to 1320 of a figure representing Robert FitzRalph who was the 2nd Lord of Grimthorpe. He has a shield which depicts the Grimthorpe coat of arms.
