Cumwhitton St Mary

  • Description

    Church information from the Diocese of Carlisle. "....St Mary's Church is an ancient edifice and is probably one of the oldest churches in the area that has not been rebuilt or revised in any important way. The church dates from about 1160AD. The North arcade of three bays is probably of about 1200....The church reflects the passage of time through the incorporation of historic styles from Norman to L.C.Evetts Post-War stained glass. Visually, the church interior is held together by the robust Norman piers and arches that support the north aisle. Possible evidence of earlier buildings can be seen in the re-use of a probable Saxon double splayed window in the aisle....."
