Church of St Mungo, Church Street, Dearham - Allerdale

Church of the late C12, with C13 and C19 extensions, including work by CJ Ferguson. It is famed for the incorporation of much earlier sculpture predating its Norman foundation into the fabric. There are considerable patches of stone erosion caused by repointing in hard cement. The chancel, and its east wall in particular, suffers from damp caused by blocked gutters. It has stonework with large open joints, and is subject to movement.The church received a grant through the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund in 2015.
