St Cuthbert’s Church, Kentmere
St Cuthbert’s Church, Kentmere
Little is known of the early history of this building. It has been suggested that parts may be of Norman or even Saxon times. It was re-roofed, probably in the mid-16th century, and the present ceiling beams are thought to be of that age. The building’s site, in the middle of a circular walled burial ground next to a yew tree which is around 1000 years old, would suggest a very early place of worship. LinkExternal link
