Photographer's Note

This is the church at Crosthwaite, in the Lyth Valley of the southern Lakes District in old Westmoreland, now a part of Cumbria. The church in this shot was rebuilt in the late 1800s. The original church was a smallish very ancient chapel without a tower or chancel,and is shown on record back to the 11th century....and is believed to go back as early as the 9th. So, this is the church where my ancestral family prayed, were christened /baptised, married, worshipped, and eventually died and were buried in the cemetery here or at Heversham church not far away. This shot was taken from the wide path leading over a small brook to the old cemetery by the church. Tombstones dating back to the late 1600s can be found there, including some of my Strickland ancestors. The church stands within a tranquil setting and has beautiful pastoral views overlooking the Lyth Valley.
