If there can be said to be a patron saint of Cumbria it would be St. Kentigern (also known as St. Mungo) who, according to popular legend, visited Cumberland in the 6th century and preached in the area of Keswick. Many churches in the northern part of the Lakes now bear his name.
St. Kentigern’s is typical of the small churches that lie tucked away in the quiet valleys of Lakeland. In particular, our model is inspired by St. James’s at Buttermere, which was consecrated in 1507 and assumed its present form in 1840.
