A church was first established on this site in the aftermath of the Dissolution of the Monasteries when Cartmel Priory was dissolved as part of the Henrician Reformation and a chapel was built on the present site using materials from Cartmel. This occured around 1537. After three restorations the church was opened as a church by the Bishop of Carlisle on May 29th 1897 and dedicated to St Mary the Virgin.The Lych Gate was erected as a War Memorial in 1927. It was constructed of locally grown oak grown in the parish.The churchyard contains numerous headstones and also some vaults, some of which are hewn in the rock.
The church community at St Mary's is friendly and inclusive. We welcome families, walkers and visitors. Most of our services are Holy Communion. Members of the congrgation are involved in reading the lessons, the psalm and administering the chalice.
