Cartmel Priory from the churchyard, Cartmel, Cumbria.

Cartmel Priory is now the parish church of Cartmel. The priory was founded in 1190 by William Marshal, later 1st Earl of Pembroke, for the Augustinian Canons and dedicated to Saint Mary the Virgin and Saint Michael. It was first colonised by a Prior and twelve monks from Bradenstoke Priory in Wiltshire. Of the monastic buildings the priory church and a gatehouse survive.

There are many features of special interest, both inside the church (please see upload of inside by BarbaraR) and outside, including the unique square belfry tower constructed diagonally across the original lantern tower. Simon Jenkins, in his book 'England's Thousand Best Churches', says that "Cartmel is the most beautiful church in the north-west".

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Winter Visitor'.

Best wishes,
Philip

It's been standing for around 800 years then and looks so strongly built it will probably stand at least another 800! Can't say that of many modern structures! Good composition and a fine view of this ancient church.
