Warwick-on-Eden - St Leonard's Church. Pic N0266.

 

According to Pevsner, St Leonard’s at Warwick on Eden is the most memorable Norman village church in Cumberland, with its apse decorated outside by plain projecting pilaster strips carrying small arches. This is rare in England, more often found in France.

 

There are two three-light stained glass windows – by Daniel Bell in the East apse, and by Henry Holiday in the baptistry.
