Remnants of the original church building are visible in the churchyard. The church, dedicated to St John, was built in 1719, although this was probably the site of a church as early as 1204.

The chancel of the church was pulled down in 1892. The earliest memorial in the churchyard is from 1729 and the last recorded interment was in 1939.

A burial register specifically for St John Churchyard dating from 1720-1812 has been deposited with the North Yorkshire County Record Office, Malpas Road, Northallerton, North Yorkshire DL7 8TB. Later (mid 19th century) Bishop's transcripts are with the Borthwick Institute for Archives, University of York, Heslington, York, YO10 5DD. The parish was combined with that of All Saints Low Worsall in 1891 and additional information about burials in St John Churchyard might be found with that parish register.
