Built in 1828 to designs by Kendal architect George Webster, the church probably replaced an earlier church or chapel, with some documentation mentioning a church in 1577. There are no remains of this earlier building, and I'm not sure if this church is built on the site of its predecessor, or if the earlier church or chapel was elsewhere in the village. I love the tower on this church....it looks completely out of proportion to the rest of the building.....but it is small and perfectly formed, with tiny louvered bell openings.
The Grade II listed monument can be found to the left hand side of the pathway as you enter the church yard. The church has a number of stained glass windows....although the most precious one is undoubtedly a Shrigley and Hunt piece showing St Paul. More photos will follow when I can visit the interior.
