About this church
The splendid and spacious Georgian internal layout remains intact, with its galleries on three sides supported by two tiers of columns, and a richly decorated boxpanelled ceiling.
The large, vibrant stained glass east window is surrounded by colourful Victorian murals.
In the graveyard is the Giant's Thumb, a grave consisting of two tall Norse crosses between which lie four hogback stones, or gravemarkers. Legend has it that this is the grave of Owen Caesarius, King of Cumbria 920-937, or his son.
