St Lawrence's church, Appleby

The parish church of Appleby, in the Anglican Diocese of Carlisle, stands at the bottom of Boroughgate (the principal street of the town centre). The lower stage of the tower survives from the Norman period circa 1150, contemporary with the Castle at the top of Boroughgate. The south porch and most of the body of the church is C14/C15, in "decorated" style on the inside and "perpendicular" on the outside. The north chapel and chancel were rebuilt by Lady Anne Clifford in 1655. The building was restored again in 1861-2 and 1960. It is noted for Anne Clifford's tomb in the north side chapel, the organ of 1571 (formerly in Carlisle Cathedral), the C15 rood screen and a font of Frosterley limestone. The building and its curtilage are listed grade 1 (list entry 1312067).
