Holy Trinity, Brathay

Holy Trinity

The beautiful grade II listed church of Holy Trinity at Brathay, can be found a mile south West of Ambleside on the A593 to Skelwith Bridge. The church sits on an outcrop of rock above the River Brathay overlooking the wooded river banks. Built around 1836, the church was almost totally funded by the Redmayne family, and is built in a distinct Italianate style.

The church does not lay in the traditional East West aspect, but instead lays in a North South aspect....due to the lay of the small area of land upon which is built.

Set in a beautiful location, and only a stones throw from the Lake District, this church is well worth a visit. I don't think it is kept unlocked as a matter of course though.
