Ousby - St Luke's Church.
 

St Luke’s Church lies outside the village of Ousby, to the East. It is built of local stone and dates from the 12th or early 13th century, fell into a ruinous state in the late 14th century, and was almost entirely rebuilt in 1858.

 

There are two stained glass windows – the three light East window contains an image of St Luke by John Scott of Carlisle. The other window – in the south east of the nave – ‘Pro Patria’ – is a memorial to those who fell in World War I.
