St Lawrence's church is a grade I listed building, of late 12th century foundation, rebuilt late 13th after a raid by the Scots, restored 16th by Lady Anne Clifford, followed by two rounds of 19th century internal remodelling.
The church is light and spacious and contains many interesting windows and monuments.
The oldest part of our church is the lower parts of the tower, which date back to the 12th century. The pillars in the nave are from about 1300. The porch is from a similar age, but the dog tooth moulding around the main door is about 100 years older. The carved wooden screens behind the choir stalls date from about 1500.
The organ at the back of the church with its richly ornamented case was a gift to the town of Appleby from Carlisle Cathedral in about 1683.
