A gorgeous church in an isolated but beautiful location, makes me wish I was religious so I could enjoy it even more. Worth the detour to see.

We were looking around Mirehouse and gardens but while on our walk around the grounds we followed a route that took us over a field of sheep, and accompanying poo(!), towards this quaint old church. There were some starlings nesting in the entrance and inside,...More

A strange title you say, well this little church is a bit like a desert oasis as it sits surrounded by fields, which are populated by sheep. The sea you ask, well it's next to Lake Bassenthwaite, which is the only lake in the Lak...More
