Our Church

Beesby is a small farming village with a population of about 90 and is now amalgamated with the neighbouring village of Maltby-le-Marsh (population about 300) following the closure of their church. These villages are three and four miles respectively from Alford.

The 12th Century grade II listed building was largely restored in the late 19th Century and again in 2002, with the help of the Beesby Residents Association and the Alford Group of Parishes.

Our Annual Summer Stall outside Alford Church, selling everything you can imagine collected throughout the year, has a great reputation, and brings in enough to cover most of our parish share contribution to Diocesan costs.
