Churches in St Bees
There are two places of worship in St Bees – the Priory, which is open for public worship, and the St Bees School Chapel which is reserved for School use. Both are Church of England. The Methodist Chapel on the Main Street is now closed. Other denominations have churches in larger nearby towns.
St Bees history over the past 1,000 years has been closely linked with the Priory. It is a large Norman building (1120 AD) on an earlier religious site.
St Bees School has its own Chapel which is used mainly for school services. It is not open to the public.
