Accessibility information for our visitors

Visitors coming by car or coach

Our car park is surfaced and links to the building via a tarmac drive. Parking spaces adjacent to the drive are reserved for those with mobility needs. If for reasons of mobility you would like to park adjacent to the building, or to drop off passengers closer to the front door, please feel very welcome to get in touch in advance. Staff and volunteers will also be very happy to assist visitors on arrival. 

Visitors may also park on nearby Bede Crescent, to the south of The Beonna, and enter the churchyard via the connecting footpath through the churchyard.

Free parking in our large car park is available throughout our normal opening hours, at special events and during hire at other times. Coaches and minibuses are very welcome and we encourage drivers to make contact in advance to allow us to reserve them a space.

Visitors coming on foot or by public transport

Buses travelling from Boston to Skegness stop on the same side of the road as The Beonna, approximately 45 metres from the north east entrance to the churchyard. Those coming from Skegness towards Boston stop at the bus stop on the opposite side of the road, directly opposite The Beonna, with a walk of around 12 metres to the north east entrance to the churchyard. There is no gate at this entrance and the main door is approximately 80m away. 

A low-level pedestrian gate also opens from Main Road into the eastern end of the churchyard. 

In the churchyard and car park

There are no steps or inclines anywhere in our grounds. From the car park the churchyard and building are accessed via a wide tarmac drive. Overhead lights are currently being installed in the churchyard and along the drive with additional low level lights at the main door. 

Several footpaths run through the churchyard. These are flat and have a tarmac surface. That running east-west, from Main Road towards Bede Crescent, has overhead lights.   

Inside The Beonna

We welcome assistance dogs in all areas of the grounds and building.  

We have male and female WCs and a separate wheelchair accessible WC. A low ramp leads from the nave into the chancel, and two staggered steps in the chancel lead up to the communion table. The remainder of the building is, however, on one level. All of our interior and exterior doors have sufficient clearance for wheelchair users to pass through easily. 

If you are planning a visit, or considering The Beonna as a venue for your next party or special occasion, and would like to know more about our accessibility please do get in touch.
