Church of St Bridget, Parton - Copeland

Built on the site of a Roman fort and in an exceedingly exposed position, St Bridget's was built in1822 and replaced an earlier medieval church. A stout and elegant classical design, some of the stonework to the west front (that faces the prevailing winds coming off the Irish Sea) is severely eroded and a cause for concern, along with efflorescence to the north parapet.
