Pickhill All Saints is an Ancient Parish in the county of Yorkshire. Other places in the parish include: Ainderby Quernhow, Allerthorpe, Holme, Holme cum Howgrave, Holme near Thirsk, Ainder by Quernhow, Pickhill with Roxby, Sinderby, Swainby, Swainby with Allerthorpe, and Howe.
The church of ALL SAINTS consists of a chancel 24 ft. 7 in. by 17 ft. 7 in., north vestry, north chapel 16 ft. 3 in. by 12 ft. 5 in., nave 37 ft. 4 in. by 18 ft. 9 in., north aisle 8 ft. 5 in., south porch, and west tower 14 ft. 3 in. square. These measurements are all internal.
The church was built about 1150, and consisted of a chancel and nave only. Of this building the richly carved chancel arch and south doorway remain with some of the walling in the south and east walls of the nave. The north aisle and chapel were added about 1200, and the chancel appears to have been enlarged early in the 14th century, its south wall having been brought out to the line of the south wall of the nave. The tower was added late in the 15th century. A restoration and enlargement took place in 1877. The north aisle was then rebuilt and the vestry added, and the restoration has left but two or three of the windows with their original stonework.
In the churchyard is the shaft of a churchyard cross with a stepped base; the shaft is octagonal stopped out to square below.
There are three bells: the first inscribed 'Jesus bee our speed 1656'; the second, 'This bell at Pickall Anno Domini 1781'; the third was recast in 1888 by Warner.
The plate includes a communion cup of 1631, by Sem Casson, with the York marks, another cup by H. R., inscribed 'Datum in usum Ecclesiæ de Pickhill 1683,' a large paten or salver, with London marks of 1717, given by Mrs. Sarah Eaden, 1733, and a modern paten; also two pewter flagons and an almsdish of 18th-century work.
The original registers begin in 1654, but there exists a copy of the older registers from 1567.
