"St Bega's church is the Parish Church of Bassenthwaite. It is situated in fields on the East shore of Bassenthwaite Lake and is dedicated to the Celtic Saint, Bega. The building dates from about AD 950, though the site may be older. For over a thousand years the Christian message has been spread from this place.
The Church is used for services at least twice each month and is also used for a large number of weddings and baptisms.
Always open, it is widely visited by people from all over the world. Most come on foot, often from a considerable distance. A children’s corner provides for younger visitors. In the Church are Bibles in 28 languages to make overseas visitors feel at home. A well-supported charity box helps support charities in developing countries.
St Bega’s Church is the end-point of the recently published ‘St Bega’s Way’, a short long-distance walk, developed by a parishioner."
