Parish Boundaries

Traditionally, Church of England churches, "Parish Churches", minister to those who live within their parish boundaries - and every home in England is part of a Church of England Parish.

More recently, the law has also allowed those with a specific "connection" to get married in a particular church.

The link below opens full-screen to show the Parish Boundaries. You can zoom out of the map below using the controls in the bottom right corner ( + or - ). So you can find out if you live inside the parish.

The map is slightly out of date, in that the parish now extends up to Park Road on its North edge to include the whole of the Eldon Street Estate.
