Church of St Bride, Kirkbride

St Bride's Church is a 12th century church located to the north Kirkbride in Cumbria, overlooking the estuary of the River Wampool. The chancel arch of the church is believed to be of Saxon origin, and the stone used to build the church is likely to have been taken from a nearby former Roman camp.[1] The church was restored during the 19th century.[2] St Bride's is a Grade II* listed building on the National Heritage List for England.
