St Augustine’s Church

St Augustine’s Church, otherwise known as ‘King of Holderness’ stands high and proud in the centre of Hedon, on Market Hill. It is a Grade I listed building of national importance. As fantastic as it appears in daylight, the church is often lit up at night and is a majestic and eerie treat for the eyes.

Named for St Augustine of Hippo, the earliest parts of the church date back to 1190 but most of what you see today evolved between the 13th and 14th century, with minor additions in the 18th and 19th century. For more detail please see the list entry with Historic England here.

Parts of the church are in poor repair and donations are always welcome to help restore this magnificent building.
