A medieval building near Goole has been taken off the "Heritage at Risk" register after being rescued with a £90,000 grant from English Heritage.

The Adlingfleet rectory, which includes a doorway that dates from the 12th century, fell derelict in the 1970s. It was bought by the current owners, Tim and Amanda Harding in 1996.

They stabilised the building to stop it decaying but could not afford to do the repairs that were desperately needed to bring the building back into use.

But now, thanks to the grant from English Heritage, the rectory, which is protected as a scheduled monument and listed at grade II*, has been made weather-tight and useable for the first time in 40 years.

Existing parts of the structure including walls and timbers have been repaired, and a new timber first floor and roof have been added.
