Church of St Bartholomew, Loweswater


St Bartholomew's Church is the parish church in Loweswater. It was built in 1827 on the site of an ancient place of worship which dated back to the 12th century. The chapel was associated with St Bees Prory. In 1884 the church was expanded and largely rebuilt, when it was anticipated that the population of the parish would grow following the discovery of a vein of lead running through Loweswater valley and a mine being opened at Godferhead.[1] However, the larger-scale lead mining wasn't successful and the population didn't change significantly.
