ST GREGORY'S MINSTER
St Gregory's Minster is the Parish Church of Nawton and Beadlam and has been in continuous use since before the Norman Conquest. It stands on the site of an earlier Church, which is referred to on its Saxon sundial, and which says that the Church, built by Orm between 1055 and 1065, replaces an earlier one, which was ruined. It is considered likely that this was an early Anglo-Saxton Monastery.
ST HILDA'S CHURCH
St Hilda's Church in Beadlam was built in 1882-83 as a daughter Church of St Gregory's. Both Churches are an important part of the heritage of the village and continue to have lively and active roles in the community today. St Hilda's is the Church of a Local Ecumenical Partnership between Anglicans and Methodists.
