Christ Church, Stricklandgate, Penrith - Eden

Built in 1850 by Travis and Magnell in an early Perpendicular style. Constructed of coursed red sandstone rubble, with slate roofs and a large east window. The church has a new porch roof, and some repointing of high level stonework and replacement of ridge tiles has taken place. The gutters and downpipes need attention, with gutters missing on the south side of the chancel and nave.
