Great Strickland – St Barnabus’ Church

Great Strickland - St Barnabus' Church.

 

St Barnabus’ church was built in 1870-71 by George Watson of Penrith, using fine local sandstone and Stainton sandstone. The steeply pitched roof supports an elm framed bell turret.

 

A simple interior of pitch pine furnishings remains unaltered. This sensitively designed Victorian rural church is a complete period example – built on a low budget and using local materials.

 

The church has one stained glass window – ‘The Crucifixion’ by Shrigley and Hunt, in the East Apse.
