Fylingdales, St Stephen's Old Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Reminders of the coastal heritage of the area are everywhere; the interior and the churchyard are full of memorials to shipwrecked sailors, as well as a more uplifting list of successful lifeboat rescue missions. One interesting feature is an old 'maiden's garland', a floral nosegay traditonally carried in a funeral procession for a young unmarried woman.
St Stephen's is no longer in regular use and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust. Note that the church is sometimes called Old St Stephens to differentiate it from the later Victorian church (New St Stephens) built by GE Street in 1870.
