St. Andrews, Newton Kyme

The furthest out of all the Selby District churches, just a short hop to Thorpe Arch. St. Andrews is nestled beside a large hall.

Although there are no actual war graves, there is an interesting headstone -

Douglas Grant, 'Professor, Poet, Author, Commando' 1921 - 1969

A search reveals that D. Grant served in the commandos as an officer in Sicily during WW2.
