Yealand Conyers
The stunning village of Yealand Conyers is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a limestone area, well wooded and rich in wildlife - the RSPB Nature Reserve of Leighton Moss, well known for its bitterns, being within easy walking distance.

Within the parish is Leighton Hall; its origins dating back to 1246. This has been a Catholic stronghold and during the period of Catholic persecution, a priest was frequently hidden within the walls. The Catholic Church of St. Mary was consecrated in 1852, although there had been a previous building here since 1782.

The tranquil village also features The Anglican Church of St. John, which was elevated to the status of a parish in its own right on 25th September 1870 – it was originally a chapelry of the Parish church of St Oswald. The village also features a traditional pub, The New Inn, which dates back to around 1680.

Local walks afford impressive views of Morecambe Bay, the Lakeland Fells and The Pennines. Within a few miles are castles, Pele Towers and stately homes.
