Beadlam was historically a township in the ancient parish of Kirkdale. It became a separate civil parish in 1866, but remains part of the ecclesiastical parish of Kirkdale. St Gregory's Minster, the parish church in Kirkdale, has been in use since before the Norman Conquest. Its daughter church of St Helen's in Beadlam, built in 1882-3, serves as the church of a local Ecumenical Partnership between Methodists and Anglicans.
Two miles west of the village is Beadlam Roman villa which was excavated in 1969 revealing two 4th century rectangular buildings the northernmost of which was fitted with a hypocaust overlain by a tessellated floor.
