St Marys, Yealand Conyers


St Marys Yealand BW

St Marys Catholic Church is situated in the beautiful hamlet of Yealand Conyers, an area of outstanding natural beauty and scientific interest.

The current church was built and consecrated in 1852 after the previous mission Church established in 1782 became too small and was re-used as the parish hall.  Within the Parish is Leighton Hall, with its origins dating back to 1246.  The Hall has been a Catholic stronghold during times of persecution and has its own Chapel.  The churchyard of St Marys contains the family tomb of the Gillows family.

Easter Monday 2009 St Marys was formally linked with the Catholic parishes of St Mary of the Angels; Bolton le Sands and Our Lady of Lourdes; Carnforth.  The three parishes are served by Fr John Gibson (Parish Priest) with the communities working in close partnership but retaining individual parish councils.
