St James, Tebay

St James

Sandwiched between the M6 motorway and the A685, this small , Medieval looking church can be found at the end of Church Lane. Actually built in 1880, St James was funded entirely by the railway company, North Eastern Railway, and its workers, and was built to designs by C.J. Ferguson.

Up until the building of St James, worshippers would most likely have had to make their way to Orton, a journey of some three miles to the North.

I haven't managed to get inside this church yet, but follow this link for some excellent photos of the memorials and windows contained within.

There's a great deal of additional information about this church here.

Another visit is required to get the obligatory internal photos!
