THE PARISH CHURCH OF SAINT PETER, CARTMEL FELL


The Church over 450 years old is hidden away on Cartmel Fell built on a slope the church runs down to the alter, the wall and windows are oddly out of shape. The porch like a tunnel takes you to the south doorway, built like the tower of undressed stone. There is no chancel arch, but between the nave & the sanctuary are two pews with cornices like those of a four poster beds, made for the lords of two great houses. Burblethwaite Pew has its roof raised on high turned posts with latticed cornice round. Cowmire Hall Pew is as old as the church and has lost much of its grandeur, but the tracery hangs from a crested cornice carved with flowers, and the panelled door swings on fine old hinges.
