Dacre, in the Diocese of Carlisle, nestles among the hills of the Lake District National Park, only five miles from the M6 and close to Penrith. Mentioned by Bede in his Ecclesiastical History of 698 AD, St Andrew’s is an historic church with a loyal and friendly congregation which serves four villages. The parish is in one of the most picturesque locations in Cumbria, stretching from the outskirts of the market town of Penrith in the east, to the shores of Lake Ullswater at Dacre.
