Goathland St Mary's from the south-eastThere has been a place of worship in Goathland, on the North Yorkshire Moors, for at least eight centuries;  and at the site of the present church of St Mary since Elizabethan times.

The present building, which was completed in 1896, was designed by Mr Walter H  Brierly of York who said of his creation: "The qualities of simplicity, breadth and sturdiness were felt to be especially required for such a bleak moorland situation, and were aimed at in the design".

Today Goathland is a member of a group of five parishes, the Benefice of Middle Esk Moor. Together with Goathland, this comprises: St Hilda's Egton, St Thomas', Glaisdale, St Matthew's Grosmont and St James' Lealholm.

The Vicar of the Benefice is Revd Paul Jackson. For more information click here.
