The Old Parish Churches of Cumbria


This book describes all the features of interest dating from the Saxon period to the 1790s to be seen in the 180 parish churches and chapels-of-ease in the county of Cumbria.

An introduction describing the development of parish church architecture, furnishings and funerary monuments in the county is followed by a detailed gazetteer illustrated with many photographs, plans and drawings.

Churches founded during the 19th century, many of them serving the new industrial areas, are listed at the back but are not illustrated or described in detail.
