  • Lovely restful place to call in, always open during daylight hours. Check out the windows and the stonework.

  • Question 40 (Cumbria section) number 5 of the British Cycle Quest used to be.: A gravestone near the northwest corner of the churchyard bears a CTC badge (Cyclists Touring Club) What is the name of the cyclist and from where did he originate? I visited it in 2009 to answer the original question and returned (having the question been changed to the asking for the inscriptions on the church entrance, which I think is shameful) The young man who was found on Haberwain Ridge was only 22 and has been lying there since 1929. He has obviously not been visited in a long time. Poor chap. I removed the moss from the head stone and had a beer for him down at the Butchers arms. The question should not have been changed as it is a very humbling experience. (Changed at least in April 2019 by someone who couldn't find the grave? It is still very readable) I will email the CTC and ask them to at least mention the original question.
  • Beautiful community church.
