The church, dedicated to the Celtic Saint Bega, is situated in a picture perfect setting in fields on the east shore of Bassenthwaite Lake.
The building dates from about AD 950, though the site may be older. The church attracts many walkers, being the end-point of the 'St Bega’s Way', a long distance walk developed by one of its parishioners.
The church is always open and is widely visited by people from all over the world. To reflect this the church has a collection of Bibles in 28 languages, which make overseas visitors feel at home.
