Bowland Bridge Things to Do: 3 reviews and 11 photos
As churches go, this is a beauty. Located in a beautiful place, up a dead end lane and with rural views, it is a moving church to visit. It is the only church in England dedicated to St. Anthony and was built in 1504.
It is actually built on a slope, which is obvious from the outside as you can see a seat built onto the side of the church sloping downhill.
Inside, the splendid wooden beams of the ceiling are probably the first thing you notice. On either side are wooden, boxed pews, quite some workmanship in these.
The 15thc. stained glass windows have come from Cartmel Priory, a spectacular priory in Cartmel, near Grange-over-Sands and depict Christ on the cross linked with St. Anthony and St. Leonard by streams of Christ's blood.
Outside the church grounds is the Parish Hall. This was originally the primary school up until 1965.
Address: Cartmel Fell, Cumbria
Directions: Turn right off the A590, heading towards Barrow-in-Furness,at High Newton and follow signs for Cartmal Fell and church.
