Pronouched Ingoldsthorpe by us locals, a place where my mother lived for a while, when she worked at Ingoldisthorpe Manor Hotel. This burned down. Mother never liked the place all because of an over amouress manager. Here is the attractive flint church with the manor house for a neighbour, leaving the Old Hall, and a row of cottages with a big clock, to their lower place. By the porch is part of the shaft of an old cross. It is said to be the third church on this site, and though much restored last century, has still something to show of Norman days and of the three medieval centuries. The Norman relic is the octagonal font, which was originally made square. The nave is partly 13th century, the tower is 14th century, and a 15th century screen with fine tracery divides the nave and chancel, which are crowned with modern roofs on corbels carved with angels and figures from the Bible.
