St Stephen, New Hutton

St Stephen
New Hutton

New Hutton sits between the M6 motorway to the East, and Kendal, about three miles to the West. It is more of a hamlet than a village, literally consisting of about a dozen houses.

The church was built 1828 to 1829 to designs by George Webster of Kendal.

There's very little information about this church, including the curious use of greyhounds on the fence columns to the front and rear of the church. As usual if anything comes to light, I'll include it here.
