St Bridgets Church Beckermet Village nestles below the local fell, Cold Fell, from where the source of its name runs. Beckermet is so called because of the two becks, Kirkbeck (or Red Beck as it is referred to locally, due to its passing through iron ore mining areas) and the Black Beck which merge at its centre hence 'Becker-meet'.

The village consists of two historic parishes, the Parish of St John's and the Parish of St Bridget's. The two are divided by the beck that runs through the village. A village of two halves, if you like, but living together. St Johns Church

The becks and the charming village centre now provide a thriving community of new and old in both inhabitants and their dwellings.

With a host of wonderful country walks along the local rivers and surrounding area, with refreshment at hand at the two local inns, it’s a village that is well worth a visit.
