"LORTON, a parochial chapelry in the parish of Brigham and the ward of Allerdale-above-Derwent, county Cumberland, 3 miles S.E. of Cockermouth, its post town, and 8 N.W. of Keswick. It is situated on the river Cocker, and comprises the villages of High and Low Lorton, with the townships of Brackenthwaite and Wythop, and the hamlet of Armaside. The people are employed in flax-dressing, and in the manufacture of thread." [Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) - Transcribed by Colin Hinson ©2003]
You can also perform a more selective search for
churches in the Lorton area
that are recorded in the GENUKI church database. This will also help
identify other churches in nearby townships and/or parishes. You also have the option to see the
of the churches marked on a map.
