Church History

It was founded in 1577.
The Church of Lowick was rebuilt in 1818, and is dedicated to St Luke; but a chapel occupied the spot before the year 1577. In the Visitation of Bishop Gastrell, in 1650, it is returned as giving £5 to Sir John Pennington, the preaching minister. The Church is a plain stone building, in the joint gift of Mrs Gaskarth, and Colonel Montagu, of London. Two of the windows are ornamented with the armorial bearings of the Blencowes and the Everards, separately and incorporated. The Church will seat 260, but is situated in a thinly populated district. The living is a perpetual curacy, worth £160 a year.
