Fourteen of the churches in the Deanery of South Holderness, East Riding of Yorkshire, will hold an 'Open Churches Weekend' over the August Bank Holiday from Saturday 24th to Monday 26th August 2019.
The Holderness peninsula, east of Hull and stretching down to the mouth of the Humber estuary at the remote Spurn Point, contains some of the most significant, architecturally rich, and largest church buildings within the Diocese of York.
The fourteen parish churches include the famous 'King of Holderness' - St Augustine's, Hedon - and 'Queen of Holderness' - St Patrick's, Patrington - as well as tiny gems such as the part-Norman All Saints', Tunstall (where local celebrity Linda Barker will judge a fun dog show on the Sunday).
A website at www.openchurches-yorkdiocese.com lists the fourteen churches with some details about each, and opening times over the weekend.
Most are offering refreshments, some include other attractions such as live music, and there are no entrance charges although support for the continued use and care of these historic buildings is always welcome.
We hope you get the opportunity to visit, explore and engage with these magnificent buildings and communities.
