A lovely little church set in the middle of the former abbey. Lovely stained glass windows and lots of information about the church. Small donations, I am sure, are always welcome in the collection box.

It's not a big church but it's serene. The location is jus next to the Lanercost Priory ruins. The entrance is free.

We arrived in the church just after the Sunday Service. What lovely people greeted us! We were offered free tea and coffee and made to feel very welcome. It is a charming old church which is well worth a visit.

The Lanercross Priory Dossal is the prize possession here, and is the buildings "selling point". There are some very interesting viewpoints for photographers, but be prepared to pay a small fee if you do so. Has some really good educational boards on the area and...More
