St Luke, Lowick

St Luke

St Lukes is hidden away, about five miles North West of Penny Bridge, off the A5092. To find the church, you must turn onto the A5084, and then take a left out of the village of Lowick. The church is on your right....with Lowick Hall some two hundred yards to the West, visible through the trees.

This church, a Grade II listed building, is resplendent in its red and grey stone facing. Built in 1865 (according to Images of England) or 1818 (according to GENUKI) the church no doubt replaced a chapel mentioned in documents dated 1577. Unfortunately this was another church kept locked, so I haven't managed to gain entry yet.

There is ample parking just across the road.
