Visitor Information


Old St. Stephen's is open daily throughout the year.

Entry is free but donations are encouraged. Access is via a gated path with some steps.

Old St. Stephen's is a consecrated building and services are held here at 4pm generally on the 2nd Sunday in the month, from June to September.

Parking is limited but the Scarborough-Middlesbrough bus (No. X93) stops close by.

Good dogs are welcome, as are passing walkers who may enjoy shelter inside if it’s rainy. As this is 1822 there is no electricity and no toilets.

This is a Living Churchyard so there may be nettles.  

There may also be sheep - please take care to shut gates after you.
