Great day with my work colleagues that included a detailed tour of the church. Its history is incredible. It is a little gem in the local area. A place you have to visit if you come to Heysham.

Well brown-signed from the main road and enough free parking for about seven cars. This area is very popular with dog walkers though, who are likely to be using quite a few of those spaces. The church will be locked, due (we were told), to...More

The remains of the Anglo-Saxon chapel on the rocks above the church are an absolute must. Stunning views and fascinating remains. The human shaped tombs carved into the rock are genuinely amazing and the remains of the chapel overlooking the sea are beautiful. It's completely...More
