Welcome to our Parish!

We are applying for grants to enable us to do this vital work towards repairing our ancient (and modern!) buildings so that they continue to provide a focus and amenity base for the community, as well as a sacred space for worship – and the recent beer festival and concert are two excellent examples of that in practice.  Many thanks to those of you, as beneficiaries of the building, who signed the statement of support for this work.  Our urgent need is to make the Chapter House watertight before the Winter rains arrive.

St Robert of Knaresborough, Pannal is one part of a joint benefice with St Michael and All Angels, Beckwithshaw.
