St Gregory’s Minster

St Gregory’s Minster is an Anglo-Saxon church with a rare sundial, in Kirkdale near Kirkbymoorside, Vale of Pickering, North Yorkshire, England. It is a Grade I listed building.

The minster was built c. 1060 on the site of an earlier church, and is dedicated to St Gregory, who was Pope 590-604.

The nearby Kirkdale Cave was found in 1821 to contain a collection of ancient animal bones including the most northerly hippopotamus remains in the world.
