Church of St Bridget, A 595, Calder Bridge, St. Bridget Beckermet, Copeland - Lake District (NP)

A red sandstone and slate church in the early English style built in 1841-2 to the design of Edmund Sharpe, St Bridget's has a cruciform plan with a west tower. The plaster lining to the roof is applied to the underside of the slates. Failure of the slating has caused the plaster to become detached with consequent falls. This is preventing use of the church by the congregation.
