Wild and remote, St Nicholas' Church, Bransdale lies at the head of a beautiful moorland dale.

Records show a church on the existing site since 1282, probably connected with The Priory of Keldholme. The present church was built in 1886 by the Earl of Feversham, and was later extended in 1934. St Nicholas' boasts a barrelled roof and several graves dating to the 18th century.

Today the Church is regularly visited a great many people, drawn by its solitude and quiet beauty.

During the summer months, regular Teas Days are held in the churchyard overlooking the dale; and each year in August, St Nicholas' Church is the final destination of the Parish Pilgrimmage, held over two days linking the five parish churches in the Benefice.
