St. Peter's Church, Camerton
St. Peter's Church, Camerton
St. Peter's is situated on a bend of the River Derwent 0.5 miles south of the village of Camerton.
There has been a church on this site since the 11th century but it was rebuilt in 1694 and 1796.
The church contains a stone tomb and effigy dated 1510 of Sir Thomas Curwen, "Black Tom of the North", who is buried at Shap Abbey.
The churchyard was severely damaged by the flood of November 2009 which also destroyed a bridge over an old railway cutting which carried the route to the church. The church had to be closed until the cutting was filled in about 19 months later.
