St Mary’s Church

At the top of the 199 steps lies St Mary’s church. A fascinating church building, crammed with pews, and a marvellous raised pulpit. See if you can find the ‘Strangers’ pew.

Each successive generation has left its mark on the original 11th century foundation.

The building is remarkable for its box pews, triple decker pulpit, and elizabethan communion table, as well as several fascinating details.

For those devoted to St. Hilda,it is a place of pilgrimage, and a warm welcome awaits you from our small but stalwart congregation.
