Kendal - Holy Trinity and St George.

 

The Roman Catholic Church of Holy Trinity and St George was built between 1835 and 1837, to replace a house in Stramongate that had been used as a Catholic chapel. The church was opened in 1837 and was designed by local architect George Webster in a neo-Gothic style.

 

The statue of St George slaying the dragon over the door way was designed and built by Thomas Duckett, a wood carver under the employment of George and Francis Webster. There are an additional two pieces of work by Thomas Duckett inside the church – Ecce homo on the left and St George on the right as you enter.
