Church of St Michael, Stygate, Lamplugh - Copeland

Parish church of 1870 by Butterfield. Aisleless nave, chancel with vestry on south side, and bellcote at west end. In Perpendicular style with some windows and other features reused from an earlier building. High quality C19 glass, with four windows by Kempe. Evidence of structural movement: fracturing of tracery in easternmost window on north side; problems with porch and buttress at north west corner; and suggestion that roof is detaching from west wall. In addition, damp in the south and north walls. Must be regarded as at high risk until the extent of the movement is clarified.
