Take the B1255 from Bridlington; the Church stands on rising ground to the south. Parking on the B1255 (Church Street) is very limited but the Church is surrounded by lanes, and there is a back entrance into the Churchyard off Lily Lane. By the South Door is a tragic reminder of this community’s links to the sea with a memorial to 7 Fishermen who lost their lives off Flamborough Head in 1984.

On entering the Church, the first impression is that it is well loved and used with a variety of activities. I strongly advise you to buy the Visitor’s Guide (£1) as there is so much to see. Uniquely is “The Strickland Pardon” of 1660; “The Flamborough Book of Service”; and the “Maroon Mortar”. There are also the 14 Stations of the Cross to find, images more usually associated with Roman Catholic churches. But of particular interest is the beautiful Rood, Loft and Screen dating probably from the Middle Ages (c12th Century perhaps).

From the Church, the ruins of Flamborough Castle are but a short walk away, as are several pubs and Fish & Chips shops.
