Church of England Diocese of Carlisle Gosforth and Wasdale

St Olaf's Church, Wasdale Head, Cumbria

We look forward to welcoming visitors from around the world when we reopen after the virus has passed through. St Olaf's is England's smallest parish church, was built circa 1550, and serves a local community of around 25 and welcomes over 12500 visitors from around the globe each year.

The parish of Gosforth & Wasdale is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Carlisle’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
