About our Parish

The Parish of Lynesack and Softley stems from the Church of St.John and encompasses the villages of Butterknowle, Copley, and part of Woodland as well as a few hamlets.

The area is mainly agricultural but still shows evidence of it's pioneering days of mining  and railway transport.

The pleasant countryside has many footpaths for walkers to enjoy the open air and rural freedom. 

There's much more to come. Our site is constantly being updated
