St. Cuthbert (R.C.). NY 258 487. Steve Bulman.

St. Mary (1788). It replaced a medieval church. I'm not aware of any surviving illustrations of the old church, but this article from the Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society a least gives a mental picture of it. Interestingly, the article mentions "Mr Hill's joiners shop in the town" as having some of the pillars from the old church in the shop fabric. The article was written in 1928, so Mr Hill will be long gone, but the shop may survive. NY 256 483. Steve Bulman. Another view. Alan Blacklock. A window and pillar from the old church stand in the churchyard. A plaque below the window says that it was the sanctuary window, and that the remains were restored in 1965. Link. Grade II* listed.

Society of Friends (Quakers). NY 254 483. Steve Bulman. Grade II listed.

U.R.C. NY 257 454. Steve Bulman. Link. Grade II listed.
