St Bees Priory Church

This site is in the process of being re-written and moved to a new host.

We anticipate this being completed before the end of August 2015 - probably within the next 5 to 7 days.


The Priory Church of St Mary and St Bega, so-called because of its links with St Mary's of York and the legendary Irish Princess St Bega,

was founded almost 1,000 years ago. Much of the original building still stands and is seen from every approach to the village.

Further information can be found on the village web site -

Our apologies for any inconvenience.
