St Cuthbert, Carlisle

St Cuthbert

St Cuthberts can be found at the West end of Blackfriars Street, to the East of the city walls. This rather bleak, almost industrial looking church, is somewhat overlooked in many respects, by its nearby neighbour, the Cathedral. This church, the fourth on this site, dates from 1778, but contains some 14th and 15th century stained glass windows.

St Cuthberts has a West tower that is strangely out of proportion to the nave, which is built to look as if it is of two storeys. There are no monuments within the church, that predate the 1800's. Check the link for more information.
