St Bees, its development and history
Thanks to the work of Bob Jopling, a local historian, and the records of St Bees School, we now have a record of the St Bees parish people who died in the Boer War and the two World Wars.
These pages are dedicated to their memory.
St Bees Parish Council
The 1894 Local Government Act brought parish councils into existence, and just hours before the end of that year, St. Bees parish council had its first meeting to conform with the Act. But 1895 was the year in which the council really started to operate, and to mark one hundred years of activity, Doug Sim produced this booklet.
A number of publications have been produced by organisations and individuals in the village. A list of these Publications and Dissertations and links to them (where available) can be seen below. Select headings for more information.
