Killington is a hamlet about South West of Sedbergh, and approx ten miles East of Kendal. The church can be found just opposite the renovated Killington Hall. Hall Beck runs to the West of the tower and the church, with a small bridge providing access.
The church may have originally been the manorial chapel for the Pickering family when the hall opposite was built. The Pickerings were resident in Killington from the 13th century right through to the 17th century.

Killington Church is now part of the small united benefice of Lune, along with Firbank and Howgill Churches, both also well worth a visit for their lovely locations and spiritual ambience. Worship still takes place in the parish most Sundays but the pattern is irregular - so please contact the Priest-in-Charge or Churchwardens for details.
