Church of St Bridget, Bridekirk


St Bridget's Church in Bridekirk was built 1868 to 1870, designed by Cory and Ferguson of Carlisle.[1] It was built to replace an earlier parish church which had been damaged by fire - the ruins of the old 12th century church stand in the churchyard. Parts of the old church were incorporated in the new church; notably the archway of the south door and the former chancel arch. The original stone font, thought to have been carved  by 'Richard of Durham' in the 12th century, resides inside the new church. St Bridget's Church is a Grade II listed building.
