Holme Cultram Abbey, Abbeytown
Holme Cultram Abbey, Abbeytown
When the abbey was dissolved in 1538 the church of Holme Cultram Abbey was spared so that it could become the parish church, because the previous one at Newton Arlosh was too far from most of the parish. Unfortunately the church was very large and the maintenance cost more than the parish could afford, so the size of the church was drastically reduced.
