This church is well worth walking up the hill to visit. Great views outside and usually peaceful inside to stop and reflect for a moment. Information about the history is available.

The church is in a prime location atop a hill in the village. Typical old English church but very beautiful inside with a most magnificent stained glass window behind the alter.

Here for a wedding, what a beautiful medieval church. Worth a re-visit when not ‘in-service’. Well kept church yard and with a well placed bench on which to contemplate and gaze at the Fells. Beautiful!

Nestling in the centre of Hawshead this church is architecturally fascinating. There are so many things to look at. It is obviously well supported and cherished. The stained glass windows are breathtaking in particular
