St Wilfrid

Welcome to St Wilfrid's a friendly parish church situated in the stunning Lune Valley. It is part of the joint parishes of St John the Baptist, Tunstall and St Peter's, Leck and is a member church of the Benefice of East Lonsdale. St Wilfrid's church, Melling is a Grade 1 listed building. The earliest fabric in the church dates from around 1300 or earlier but as it is near the earthworks of a motte-and-bailey castle, it is possible that a church has been on the site since the 10th century. St Wilfrid's church offers a range of services more details of which can be found lower down this page.
