Find Us

We are easy to find, on the A59 in Knaresborough.  We are on the left hand side once you turn off the High Street, heading towards Harrogate.  The main access to the church, including wheelchair access, is via the car park at the rear, off Church Lane.  For SATNAV users the postcode for accessing the car parks off Church Lane is HG5 9AR.  St Mary’s car park accommodates about 12 cars.


St John’s very kindly allow us to use their car park during Sat 6pm and Sun 5pm masses.  Please do not use during the Sun 10am Mass – they have their own service at this time.  Parking options: Tentergate, Stockwell Road (shortly before it joins Boroughbridge Road) and normally on Boroughbridge Road.  However, from 22 July to 13 September 2019 there are due to be roadworks on Boroughbridge Road between Byards Park and Scriven Road.  There is disc parking (2 hours) on the High Street, Station Road and Kirkgate.  Conyngham Park charges 90p for 1 hour of parking, £1.80 for 2 hours.  Other than that people could perhaps ask other parishioners where they park?  If walking or cycling is a possibility for you, that’s another option you could consider.
