Church of St Hilda, Church Hill, Westward - Allerdale

An idiosyncratic church of 1785 to 1786, minimally Gothicised later, probably on the site of an earlier church and located above the River Wiza. The church is in poor condition, showing signs of significant water penetration and the need for repointing and stone repair. A power cable attached to the 1828 hall is pulling stone out of the north east corner, allowing further water ingress.
