Calder Abbey House, incorporating ruins and courtyard buildings adjoining to the east, St. Bridget Beckermet, Copeland - Lake District (NP)

An extension to Calder Abbey following the Dissolution of the Abbey, the house dates from early C18 but contains elements of the earlier monastic building. Further extension and alterations were designed by G Faulkner Armitage in the early C20, creating an impressive Arts and Crafts interior. Flashings and rainwater goods are in poor condition. The condition of the building is slowly deteriorating.
