Church of England Diocese of Carlisle Coniston and Torver

About Us

St. Luke's church in Torver is located on the A593 running from Coniston to Broughton-in-Furness, just north of the Torver Junction where the A593 meets the A5084 which runs down the Crake Valley to Greenodd. The church building is situated at the centre of the Torver parish and at its largest population centre, as most of Torver community is spread out down the valley and across farmland.

The church is surrounded by the older closed churchyard and the new churchyard, which is still open for burials, lies across the road on the opposite side. Just north of the church building lies the former church school that closed in the 1950s and is now affectionately known as the schoolroom in the Torver community. The schoolroom has now been renovated and is available to book for events and meetings.
