An excitation function of the 19F(p, $\alpha \gamma)^{16}$O reaction has been measured over the proton beam energy range Ep=200-800 keV using a 4$%
\pi $ NaI summing spectrometer. A new resonance was found at ER=237 keV and its properties $\Gamma _R$, $\sigma _R$ and $\omega \gamma $ have been extracted. The strengths of all resonances at Ep = 200 - 800 keV have been also extracted. The importance of the 1+ resonance  at ER=11 keV is discussed and its width has been estimated taking into account interference effects with the strong 1+ resonance at ER=340 keV. The reaction rates have been calculated over a wide range of temperatures and compared with the rates of the (p, $\alpha_{0}$) and (p, $\alpha_{\pi}$) branches of the 19F(p, $\alpha)^{16}$O reaction.
