Church of St Mary, Churchtown, Sebergham - Allerdale

St Mary's is a medieval parish church predominantly designed in the C13 Early English phase of Gothic architecture. Later repairs and alterations have given it an Edwardian appearance. The fabric is showing signs of considerable stone decay, loss of mortar and minor movement to the south west aisle, the west end, and the north face of the tower. Elsewhere, damaged stonework is causing shattering of window openings from rusting window restraints.
