We visited Cartmel on the sunny afternoon of the 19th September 2018. This large building is in the centre of the little town, and has just a small graveyard. It was of course open, and is a major attraction in the area. It’s very large and grand inside.
We visited this church on a damp afternoon on 18th September 2018. The church is in a valley beside a river, and the churchyard was full of fungi. The church was open and it had a pretty roof decorated with gold stars.
We visited this church on the afternoon of 17th September 2018 – it was very dark and pouring with rain, we got very wet! It was high up a narrow winding lane aptly named Bog Lane, which seemed to be miles from anywhere, but there was a church hall and good sized car park below it, and the notices on the boards indicate a lively community here. The church was closed.
We walked round the outside of this church on the damp morning of 17th September 2018 after a boat ride on Windermere. The church was closed. It is right in the centre of this busy town, just back from the lakeside.
We visited this church on 16th September 2018 – we were staying in the Lake District for a week and rented a cottage just outside the village. The church is situated on a hill in the middle of this little town, and had wonderful views all round. The church was open.
This 10-bell tower was our final stop on the Prittlewell Bell Ringers’ summer outing to Berkshire on 27th August 2018. It was made famous by Sir Stanley Spencer who included it in many of his paintings.
