Our Building

A Grade II listed building, built in 1853 with funds raised by public subscription on land donated by a Mrs Susannah Newby. It contains fine oak panelling, beautiful stained-glass windows, and many memorials and inscriptions of historical interest.


Music and Worship

Popular lunch-time concerts are held about four times in the year, organised by Charles Edmondson, organist and Director of Music. Lunch is served before the concert starts.

The organ was built in 1873 by the London firm of Hill & Sons, a very reputable firm. It is a remarkable survivor. The organ was renovated in 1933 by the local organ builder, Wilkinson of Kendal who added a few more stops and installed a completely new action system; namely an exhaust pneumatic action. It is hoped that the coming years will see work to restore either the whole or part of the organ, to ensure that it continues to serve the Church for many more years to come.

We have a small female-voice, robed choir who aid our worship week-by-week at the Parish Eucharist. Their contribution is appreciated very much.
