Church History

It was founded in 1400.
The Parish church, dedicated to St. Cuthbert, stands in the village of Beckside, six miles NW of Ulverston. It is supposed by some to have been founded by Alexander de Kirkby, who, in the 2nd of Henry III, conveyed it, with 40 acres of land, to the Abbey of Furness; but from the Dano-Saxon termination of the name of the parish, there is reason to suppose that a church existed here before the conquest. It was renovated and its tower rebuilt in 1827, and has since been considerably improved, though it still exhibits rather too much of the 'refined taste' of some of our modern church wardens. Its windows contain some good specimens of old stained glass; and in its interior are a few ancient monuments; and here is a silver patten, taken by Colonel Kirkby, from the French, after they had plundered Carthagena. The church contains 482 sittings. In the tower are five good bells. The living is a peculiar in the patronage and appropriation of the Dean and Chapter of York, and incumbency of the Rev. Charles Robert Graham, B.D. It is now worth £140 per annum. Rev. J. Brocklebank, curate.
