“Church by the Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Situated by Bassenthwaite Lake and reached by a path from Mirehouse, historic house and gardens, through fields. The pre-Norman church houses a 13th century font and large 14th century cross amongst other interesting features. Although positioned remotely it was good to find open. There are lovely views to be had over the Lake. Well worth the pleasant short walk from Mirehouse.

“The oldest Church building in the Lake District”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Small Pre-Norman Grade 11 listed Parish Church, renovated in the 1870's. Walled and gated churchyard (to exclude the local sheep!) with some very old graves. The church itself is of simple style and still exhibits a number of medieval features.
Approached via a right of way through pastureland.
