In 1877 the parish church of St Mary (c1310) at Tadcaster near York was actually moved stone by stone from its original position five feet lower on the bank of the River Wharfe to its present position on higher ground just a few yards away. This was done to eliminate the risk of persistent flooding, a shrewd move in the present climate.
