The Priory Church of St Laurence at Snaith

The church at Snaith is of great historical importance having been established in some form for over nine hundred years. If you wish to look in the church, there is a key held by the Town Council in the office next to the Fire Station. You can also contact the Rector.

Snaith Parish covers both the communities of  Snaith and Gowdall.



Snaith Priory is found on Market Place in the centre of Snaith. Coming from both Goole and Pontefract, at the mini roundabout in front of the Plough Public House take the road signed to Selby. Turn immediate left onto the Market Place and the priory will be in front of you.

Coming from Selby, travel over the level crossing in Snaith and then trun right onto Market Street.




There is on street parking on all four sides of the priory. Please note, however, that there are only a small number of spaces in front of the priory on Market Street. In addition, Church Lane is residential and can be quite busy. There is also a free public car park on George Street which is only a couple of minutes walk from the priory.
