St Anne, Haverthwaite

St Anne

This is a well and truly hidden church. It lays on the route of the old A590, which is now a cul-de-sac. At Haverthwaite, where the road becomes a small section of dual-carriageway, and opposite the railway station, the old road branches off towards Cark to the South...the church can be found here, next to the old vicarage.

This Grade II listed building was built in 1824\25 and extended in 1838. The grant that was given to the church upon its building, was on condition that 200 sittings were to be 'free and unappropriated for ever'. The church has a single stained glass window. This building is due another visit, hopefully during which I'll be able to gain entry to photograph the interior.
