All Saints, is one of 2 churches in this village of 600, the other being the Methodist Church with whom we work closely in activities for children and young people and in weekly coffee mornings.
We would love to see you if you call in. Walkers and cyclists please note that when the church is open during the day we provide free self service refreshments and a place for quiet prayer and rest.
The church was completed in 1870, designed by Austin and Paley of Lancaster. It has a tall broach spire surmounting the tower, containing the original six bells and frame by Warners of London, interesting stained glass by Hardman of Birmingham and Shrigley and Hunt of Lancaster, and a vaulted chancel roof.
The first vicar of the church was Revd Frederick Binyon, father of poet Lawrence Binyon, whose poem ‘For the Fallen’ is used at Remembrance Day services: Some of Lawrence’s poems reflect his love of this area.
We share our priest-in-charge and have some joint activities, with St Oswald’s Church, Thornton in Lonsdale but unfortunately we are now in an interrugnum. Our most excellent priest Jenny has been called to minister to the people of Steeton. It is now likely that Jenny will be replaced by a house for duty priest. Discussions are currently underway to unite this benifice with those of Bentham and Ingleton.
