A light-filled riverside church

Located down the lane to the large boatyard on the River Douglas, this lovely brick-built church was constructed in 1764 to replace an earlier building.

The simply furnished interior is flooded with light from its large Georgian windows, but is very plain with a small west gallery and tiny chancel. There is a vestry and a bellcote, containing a single bell brought back when the church was repaired after coming into our care.

The font, intricately if somewhat crudely carved, was also returned having been rescued during the time that the church lay derelict and forlorn.

Two pews, the pulpit, lectern, altar and panelling also survive.
