Windermere - St Mary's Church.
 
St Mary’s church has a complicated history. Hardly anything remains of the original chapel of 1848. A south aisle with round arches was added in 1852, a north aisle with pointed arches (by Crowther) added in 1857, a nave west extension added in 1861, a north transept (by Crowther) added in 1871, and finally the chancel, the tower, and the west end by Paley and Austin added in 1881-2.
 
The church was restored after a fire in 1988.
 
There are many stained glass windows, all by different artists, including the five light East window – ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ by Burlison and Grylls.
