Sedbergh, St Gregory's Chapel
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The chapel is built to a very simple plan, made of rubble with sandstone dressing and a slate roof. There is a nave (interestingly oriented north to south rather than the more traditional Anglican west/east), a north porch and south chancel. The architect is unknown, but the style suggests that it might have been built by a railway engineer.
Perhaps the most interesting feature is the stained glass, added during a 1900 restoration by Frederick Simon. Rather than strictly Biblical scenes, the glass depicts the local landscape, trees, plants, birds, and animals.
The chapel is not in regular use and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust.
