Church of St Thomas, Crosscrake


St. Thomas' Church is located on Shyreakes Lane in Crosscrake. The church was rebuilt 1874 - 1875, designed by the Lancaster architects Paley & Austin, who had a few years previously designed the nearby Sedgwick House for the Wakefield family.[1] A chapel, founded by Anselm de Furness had existed on the site of St Thomas' from as early as 1190; the chapel was rebuilt in 1773. It had a burial-ground attached to it in 1823.
