St Mary, Borwick

St Mary

St Mary's at Borwick can be found on Borwick Lane, about half a mile North of the village of Borwick, and about two and a half miles South of Burton in Kendal. The church is a Grade II listed building, and was built between 1894 and 1896, to designs by the Lancaster firm of Austin and Paley. The funding and desire to build this small church, seems to have come from William Sharp of Linden Hall.

The church basically consists of two rooms, a 'two celled plan' as detailed by English Heritage's listed building description.

The church contains some good examples of late 19th century oak pews, and stained glass by Shrigley and Hunt of Lancaster. Unfortunately I was unable to gain access to the interior.
