This sweet little church, St. Michael and All Angels, is owned by the Pennington family, of Muncaster Castle and dates back to 1140. It was fully restored in 1999 and is a grade 1 listed building. Inside are some interesting stained glass windows and the original bell is displayed on a plinth. In the churchyard is a viking cross.

The church is still used today by the parish of Muncaster for services and weddings and is surrounded by the beautiful castle gardens.

The third photo is of the organ name, which is our name, Forster!
