St Mary's Church, Staveley, Cumbria - April 2015

I might just post some church stuff more often, I'm not the bible bashing kind of chap, but you can't beat a good little church every now and again.

Either the spooky Scooby Doo type or that quiet church yard with the only noise being the birds chattering.

Churchs, hmmmm, I know what, back road Churches - the ones you don't know you have driven past or perhaps the forgotten churches no body goes to.

So lets start with this little gem, I was passing the other week and sits hiding just off the A590 at Newby Bridge in a very quiet spot.

A church was present on the site from around 1618, and was repaired in 1678. The south and the tower date from 1793.

I won't bore you with fancy terms, that and I don't know my gargoyle from my grotesque, but I rather liked this beautiful little church.
