Visitor Info: The church is on several tourist routes and welcomes visitors.
The church is normally open between 8:30am (later on Saturday) and 5pm.
Our brief leaflets in the church provide a brief history and description.
St. Lawrence's church building is a grade 1 listed building, of late 12th century foundation, rebuilt late 13th after a raid by the Scots, restored 16th by Lady Anne Clifford, followed by two rounds of 19th century internal remodeling. We are noted for our organ, probably from Carlisle Cathedral in 1683, and the tombs of Lady Anne Clifford and her mother Lady Margaret. We are featured in Simon Jenkins' book 'A Thousand Best Churches'.
