UK – Ideas sought as St Margaret’s Church, Bentham, shuts for good

An alternative use is being sought for a Craven church which has officially closed its doors.

A consultation will be held in High Bentham following the permanent closure of St Margaret’s Parish Church, which was shut temporarily two years ago on the grounds of health and safety.

“It is a real shame,” said the Rev Stephen Dawson.

“But hopefully people will realise they need to become involved if they want their local church to stay open.”
