The Priory Church of St Mary & St Bega

This year (2020-21) St Bees Priory celebrates its 900th year, and plans on celebrating the event in various ways – some purely social like a May Ball and a Mediaeval dinner, and some historic such as lectures and exhibitions. We will even be launching a Bega beer!

The pages listed below give a detailed account of the Priory history.
