This church dominates the village. Dates back to 12 th century. Some really historic internal features including the seating in the choir. If you are in Cartmel do not miss this place.

This beautiful 800 year old priory is in a very good state of repair and is so worth a visit if you are in the area. A very tranquil place to wander through and to be in wonder of. I recommend a visit if you in the area

Always worth a visit when in the South Lakes. This priory has a long and fascinating history yet is still a parish church.
