The Church in Old Postcards

Winteringham Church - interior about 1905
The Church interior, about 100 years ago from a postcard by Gledstone & Barnard of Hull.

Below, part of the right-hand side of the postcard has been enlarged to show the oil lamps, the pulpit, the lectern and the top of one of the radiators which was part of the 1899 heating scheme.

Winteringham Church Postcard, about 1907
This postcard was posted from the village on November 25th 1907, and franked at Winteringham Post Office.  The sender was “having a weekend here and enjoying myself”, and signed himself/herself simply “AC”, sending the card to Miss Jessie Gray of 112, Minster Moorgate, Beverley.

The card gives a good impression of the elms that once lined the Churchyard, and home to a colony of rooks, from which the houses called the Rookery, and Rookery Cottage gained their names.


About 100 years ago ....

The following three postcards are all from the collection of Mrs Marjorie Bratton, and all photographed by © Ken Jacobs 2005

Note the ivy on the Church tower; the “Tudor” Rectory - home to Henry Kirke White during his time at Winteringham, by this time outbuildings and stables for the Victorian Rectory (now known as the “Old Rectory”), and the tall elms that were home to a colony of rooks, and gave the Rookery its name - seen here at the bottom right.
